‘The Road Ahead,’ Iron Bowl edition: Crunching the numbers

Are you as excited as I am? Of course you are!

The 2019 Iron Bowl is only days away, and if you are like me, you are playing the big game over and over in your mind in a futile effort to determine how the game will turn out. Of course if we knew that, we’d all be rich!

One way to bolster our arguments about which team will win is to look into the numbers: The Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers rank very high in many categories in those national statistical rankings. I thought I’d throw some of those stats your way as to better educate us on the strengths and weaknesses of both teams.

Before you watch the big game, hop on board as I bring you “The Road Ahead,” Iron Bowl edition. Let’s crunch some numbers and see where these teams shake out.
