On Saturday afternoon, Alabama and Auburn will meet in a battle of in-state rivals. While the Crimson Tide enter as heavy favorites, we've seen Auburn derail Alabama's season before.

Ahead of the major rivalry game, the weather decided to insert itself into the conversation. With rains in the area, Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne made the smart call to enlist a helicopter to help dry out the field.

But one wasn't enough. Byrne called in the aid of another and together the helicopters made their way around the field.

Check it out.

Alabama comes into the game as a 24-point favorite. with Tua Tagovailoa under center, the Crimson tide offense is firing on all cylinders.

However, recent weeks have shown the Tide are susceptible at times - last week's game against the Citadel is a prime example.

Alabama and auburn kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on CBS.
