The Alabama Crimson Tide finds themselves in a difficult situation after their 26-14 loss to the Auburn Tigers.

As the Auburn Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs prepare for their rematch in Atlanta this weekend, the fate of the Crimson Tide and their road to number 17 will be decided on Sunday with their chances going from all most certain to doubtful in a span of one game.

For the first time since the College Football Playoffs era, the Crimson Tide have to sit back and wait for the playoff committee to decided their post-season fate and also hopes other teams ahead of them fall in their conference championship games.

CBS Sports analyst and host of SEC Smothered and Covered Barrett Sallee joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to recap Auburn's victory over the Crimson Tide and how a one-loss Alabama team could get into the College Football Playoff.

Sallee also discussed Auburn's chances on beating Georgia for the second time this season and breaks down the other conference games this weekend.
