The Iron Bowl has had many memories throughout the years, and this game heading into next week is already shaping to be another one in the books.

With the Crimson Tide holding the top spot of the College Football Playoff rankings and Auburn looking to break into the top 4 after losing two tough games earlier in the season, the SEC West and a bid to Atlanta is on the line in Auburn next week.

A competitive rivalry and a rivalry that roll through the entire state of Alabama, many people are reflecting on what this rivalry means to them.

Former Alabama head coach and 1992 National Champion Gene Stallings joined The Game with Ryan Fowler for his weekly Wednesday segment where he also takes callers from the fans and discussed how he would explain the Alabama/Auburn rivalry to an outsider.

Coach Stallings also recapped Alabama's victory over Mississippi State and how do you prepare for a team like Mercer.
