The season is underway and the prediction are rolling in. The Alabama Crimson Tide begins their season in Atlanta on September 2 against the Florida State Seminoles.

According to one reporter, the Crimson Tide will play their first and last game of the season at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta because come December they will not be at the SEC Championship game.

Barrett Sallee of CBS Sports joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to give his prediction on who he sees going into Atlanta with the SEC West title.

"Alabama and Auburn are both playoff worthy teams," Sallee said. "I think the Iron Bowl will decided the SEC West. I think Alabama enter it with zero conference loss and Auburn will have one. It's basically the same landscape as 2013."

The Tigers defeated the Crimson Tide due to the infamous "Kick 6" and owned the tie-breaker in the division in 2013 to represent the division in the SEC championship game versus Missouri Tigers where Auburn pulled away a 59-42 victory and would go on to lose in the national championship to the Florida State Seminoles.

Sallee also has former Alabama coordinator Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs winning the SEC East and have the Bulldogs defeating the Auburn Tigers in the championship game.

Since joining the SEC in 2007, Saban has won 5 SEC titles and won the SEC West for seven seasons beginning in 2008.
