MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. -- There's nothing quite like the rivalry in the state of Alabama.
Two teams, Alabama and Auburn, who have genuine disdain for each other. Two fan bases that can't even utter the name of the opposing school. Three national championships in three years between the bitter rivals.
It's a rivalry that dates back more than 100 years and has grown to epic proportions in recent years due to the success each school has enjoyed both on the field and on the recruiting trail.
