Alabama prepares for dynamic Auburn offense

After an unpredictable and historic season in 2013, the Auburn Tigers have failed to reach the same heights in 2014. Alabama’s rival has lost three games this season, including a 34-7 loss to No. 15 Georgia two weeks ago.

Comfort foods don't have limits

Thanksgiving is the easily the best holiday for eating. Food is abundant and familiar as every family sticks to their special, classic dishes. It’s not Thanksgiving unless there are deviled eggs, a baked ham, and enchiladas. My mom started cooking enchiladas at Thanksgiving out of desperation, just to make sure there was enough food for our large family, and now it’s become a staple.
