If you haven't heard, it's Iron Bowl Week. This year, the stakes are even higher, but let's put rankings aside for a moment. These teams could both be 0-11 and Bama and War Eagle fans wouldn't care because beating your natural-born enemy would make that one-win season all worth it. It may sound crazy, but that's life in Alabama.
With no professional basketball and NFL teams, this is all they have in the Yellowhammer State. Nothing against Red Sox-Yankees, Ohio State-Michigan or Brady vs Manning, but this is the best rivalry in sports hands down. It is so big the rivalry had its own documentary on 30 for 30, an ESPN special.The Iron Bowl rivalry is the best in sports ... period.
