3. The Battle for the Golden Egg

If the Bulldogs and Rebels can take care of business this weekend, it would be guaranteed the winner of the Egg Bowl would be sitting in the clubhouse watching the Iron Bowl and pulling for Auburn – because if War Eagle reigned supreme in Tuscaloosa they would be headed to Atlanta.

Never before has an Egg Bowl featured two top 10 teams, but that’s what could happen this year. The two schools will likely combine for 20 regular season wins – a remarkable feat that seemed impossible before this year.
