Bill Trocchi: Game of the Week: Alabama looks to spoil Auburn's BCS title hopes

At this point, you've doubtlessly heard all about the Iron Bowl -- the passion, the pageantry, the 365-day obsession that pits neighbor versus neighbor and coworker versus coworker in the state of Alabama. It's all true. Children can literally break into tears at the sight of the rival school's logo and fans tend to celebrate the opponent's loss as much as their own victory. One thing the rivalry has not been able to produce, at least in the last decade-plus, is a game that had a massive impact on a national level.
