AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Scoring won't get any easier for Auburn this
weekend.

The Tigers host Alabama on Saturday, facing the Southeastern
Conference's top defensive team two days after scoring just 40
points in a loss to Florida.

The Crimson Tide is allowing a league-best 57.3 points per game,
and opponents are shooting just 35.9 percent, which also tops the
SEC.

Auburn coach Tony Barbee says the Tide make "everything hard"
from passing to shooting to dribbling.

The Tigers rank last in the league in both scoring and field
goal percentage.

They're still seeking their first SEC win.

Tipoff is 5 p.m., and the football team will be presented the Iron Bowl Trophy at halftime.
