Brian Robinson Jr., a Tuscaloosa native, explains how much the Iron Bowl means to him
This is Rivalry Week, and with that comes the traditional match-up in the Iron Bowl between the Auburn Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide, which will take place Saturday.
This game is always important no matter what the records of the 2 schools, but for the Crimson Tide, it is especially important this year because they don’t want to leave this game with another loss knowing they have to face Georgia next week in the SEC Championship Game with a chance to make the College Football Playoff.
It is also important to seniors like Brian Robinson Jr. because this is his last game against the Tigers and he doesn’t want to go out a loser.
The Tuscaloosa native explained his feelings on the game.

“I just let my teammates know how serious this game is. It’s an important game for all of the Alabama community, and I take it very personal,” he said on Tuesday.
A loss in the Iron Bowl for Alabama means the Crimson Tide will almost certainly be eliminated from the CFP.
The Tide will face the Tigers at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS on Saturday.
