Alabama heads into its final regular season game against in-state rival Auburn in just a few days. The Tide enter the contest as the unquestioned No. 1 team in the country and are heavy favorites despite the rivalry nature of this game.

Nick Saban's squad is a 24-point favorite against the Tigers who entered the season as a top-10 team. One major question mark facing the Tide this weekend was the health of star running back Damien Harris.

Harris suffered a concussion in Alabama's win over The Citadel last weekend.

On Wednesday afternoon, Saban revealed some major new for the Tide. Harris cleared he concussion protocol and should be good to go for Saturday afternoon's game.

That's great news for the Tide moving forward. The team might not need Harris in this weekend's game against Auburn, but the Tide face off against Georgia in the SEC title game in two weeks.

Having Harris back for the title game against the Bulldogs is a must.
