Game Week Links: Previewing The Iron Bowl

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — We’re finally here.

The end of a long road. For many Auburn fans, a merciful conclusion to a brutal fall.

And yet, there’s still the formality of possible college football’s most fervent rivalry to be played. Sixty minutes of football which, no matter what, will be dissected in full for the next 370 days (yes, there’s a year and a week separating Iron Bowl 2012 and Iron Bowl 2013.)

To get you properly pumped, here’s twenty links (20!!!) from the week in @WarEagleExtra coverage, leading up to Auburn at No. 2 Alabama.
