Alabama Football: Tide’s Playoff Chances Take Major Hit After Loss to Auburn

The Tide were the team to beat this season. There were moments this season where the Tide looked like they couldn’t be beaten, taking down their first eleven opponents by an average margin of 31.2 points per game.

That formula has held true over the years, with very few exceptions to it. One of those exceptions to that was Robert Griffin III, who won the Heisman for a 3-loss Baylor team.
