Heading into the Iron Bowl, Auburn is not a very popular pick.

Saturday Down South’s Tyler Waddell looked at various media member’s Rivalry Week picks and found no one was picking the Tigers. AU alumnus Charles Barkley, however, thinks a big upset is coming:

If Auburn, an 18-point underdog, did pull it off Saturday in Tuscaloosa, it would shock the college football world.

One other recent upset, however, bodes well for the Tigers. This century, in election years which the White House has gone to the Republican candidate, Auburn has won the Iron Bowl.
