The biggest sports week of the year has arrived in the state of Alabama. While there might not be much at stake in Saturday's Iron Bowl, the matchup between No. 1 Alabama and No. 16 Auburn gives both fanbases plenty to be excited about.

Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban met with reporters on Monday as he turned his focus towards the rivalry game and made it clear that this game is as big as it ever is.

"The legacy of the season, relative to what we can accomplish and what we can do, and the meaning of this game that we play against our rivalry in the state in the Iron Bowl certainly is a lot to look forward to, a lot to prepare for, a lot to get ready for," Saban said.

The Crimson Tide will carry an undefeated record into the game on Saturday as it looks to win three in row over the Tigers for the first time since 1990-92.

"I think this is one of the greatest rivalry games in the country. I know it means a lot to a lot people in this state as well as nationally. And the competitors in the game probably enjoy this kind of competition, this kind of rivalry, as much as any game that they play."

Saturday's game will kickoff on CBS at 2:30PM.
