For another example that Alabama-Auburn is the best rivalry in college football, check out the promotion at Lynch Toyota of Auburn. The dealership is offering free cars if the Crimson Tide are shut out by the Tigers.

Guidelines for the promotion are as follows: Anyone who buys a car from the dealership between Nov. 19 and Nov. 29 will be eligible for a full refund. To earn the refund, Auburn must shut out Alabama. As an added bonus, any person who test-drives a car during the same time gets entered into a $25,000 lottery. If Auburn beats Alabama, no shutout needed, one contestant will win the money.

It may seem like a long shot, but Auburn has blanked the Tide four times in the series’ history, the most recent coming in 2000. Regardless, this is a great promotion for one of the most intense rivalries in all of sports.

  • Good luck on getting a shut down on the TIDE - it is not going to happen. RTR!
  • Um I think that's pretty much gambling lol on a sportsbetting level at least!
    Of course its a pretty dangerous bet due to the potential for manipulation. Not to say anyone on Alabama would throw the game. But for the price of a car, id highly consider sending a few of my family members over to pickup a few new vehicles, if I did want to, maybe drop a few balls......
  • I would put my money (if I were a bettin man) on BAMA shutting down Auburn instead. Just sayin . . . ROLL TIDE!!!
  • Stranger things have happened. WDE!!
  • I'm with you. I believe Alabama is destine to win. Who won last year? Hummmm Alabama. Do it again and my vote is for McCarron for the Heisman. Should've gotten it last year.
  • I'm giving away cars (you dont even have to buy it first)if the sun doesn't come up on Nov 30th! It's about the same odds!
  • Never say never...just ask any Michigan fan about Appalachian State...
  • Guy on Finebaum just said McCarron wasn't really showing up in the polling for Heisman nation-wide. Says it'll be Winston Jameison, Manziel, or Bryce Petty. I thought McCarron was doing better in the polls. http://espn.go.com/college-football/heisman13/

Saban not pleased with being asked about A.J. McCarron's SI cover

Do you take Nick Saban for the type of person who reads magazines? If you do, don’t ever tell him, because he apparently doesn’t have the time of day for reading a few articles, and he gets offended if you think he does. Tonight a reporter asked Saban what he thought of AJ McCarron’s new cover on this week’s Sports Illustrated, and Nick was not pleased. His response was...

Alabama football: 2 Things to take away from Miss. State game

The Alabama football team certainly had its struggles on Saturday night against Mississippi State in Starkville, Mississippi.

Although the Tide played a sloppy game of football, this game, in a way, humbled the Tide– something that...

Nick Saban Rips in to Reporter that Asked Him About A.J. McCarron's SI Cover

Nick Saban is a no nonsense, football oriented kind of guy (in case you didn't know). He is not in to the all the extraneous crap that fills up space for newspapers and web sites. As long as he has been coaching football you would think reporters that regularly cover him and the Alabama football team would know this. Well, apparently one has still not figured this out--and...

Sports Illustrated Covers Not Chosen Over AJ McCarron's Cover

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron graces the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, as the debate rages on where he ranks among college football quarterbacks of today and historically.  It's an interesting choice of covers because so much happened in college football last weekend, and this cover choice would have been better suited for Iron Bowl week, where it would upset Nick...

SI Cover Wonders If AJ McCarron Is The Best Ever (Photo)

When you are 35-2 as a starter in college, it would appear fair for people to bring your name up in the discussion of all-time greats.

Alabama is 10-0 right now and well on its way to a third straight BCS National Championship. It has been another ridiculously dominant season for the Crimson Tide, and a major reason for that success is signal-caller AJ McCarron. McCarron has never received the hype or accolades that many other quarterbacks across the nation often do, but what he certainly doesn’t lack is a football...

Video: Auburn Teacher Makes Disgruntled UGA Fan Wear AU Gear, Sing Fight Song After Bet

By all accounts, Auburn’s victory over Georgia this past Saturday was a miracle. The Tigers were facing a 4th-and-18 from their own 27-yard-line and needed two UGA defenders to accidentally tip the ball to their wide receiver, Ricardo Louis, to emerge victorious. But hey – a loss is a loss, and Georgia fans who made bets on their Bulldogs are paying up this week. One such supporter...

Chattanooga-Alabama Preview

Alabama was able to sleepwalk through a victory at Mississippi State last weekend without dire consequences. Opponents in the near future probably won't be as forgiving.
