ESPN has made it official – the College GameDay crew will be heading to Auburn next Saturday ahead of the Iron Bowl, the annual matchup between the Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Given the magnitude of the game this year, the decision was a no-brainer for the Worldwide Leader.

The matchup is a defacto SEC West championship game – Alabama sits at 7-0 in conference, while Auburn has dropped just one contest in league play. The winner could also find itself in the BCS National Championship Game later this season (almost guaranteed, if Alabama). Amazingly, the winner of this game has gone on to win the last four BCS titles. Yeah, it sounds like ESPN made the right decision.
