White and Jeremy Johnson have combined for nine touchdowns. Ricardo Louis and Melvin Ray have combined for 898 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Roc Thomas has 11 receptions.

The Crimson Tide are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Tigers are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Crimson Tide are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Auburn.
Even with this being a rivarly game, Auburn doesn't play a lick of defense and doesn't have a quarterback who can pass the ball with any consistency. This game will get ugly as the Tide are inching closer to another playoff bid.
