Auburn is better than Alabama. It's a fact...
So, I decided to take a look at what happened in the decade of the 2000's and try and figure out just who was the state of Alabama's team of the decade.
The first stat that I thought would be the most telling would be plain and simple:
Auburn was 88-39 from 2000-2009 which comes out to a 69% winning percentage.
Alabama was 79-48 from 2000-2009 which comes out to a 62% winning percentage.
The next stat should obviously be:
Head to Head match-ups
Auburn beat Alabama in 2000, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06 and 07 winning 7 out of 10 games in the decade.
But let's dig further....
Auburn went 52-28 in the SEC during the last decade.
Alabama went 46-34.
Auburn went 36-11 outside of the SEC
Alabama went 33-14.
Auburn did well in bowls going 6-3.
Alabama went 4-3.
Record Against Non-BCS Opponents
Auburn dominated Non-BCS Opponents running a perfect 25-0 record.
Alabama went 25-6
Numbers don't lie. Yes Alabama, you may have won yourself another mythical national championship, but Auburn is the state of Alabama's team of the decade. In the decade of the 2000's Auburn was better than Alabama....It's a fact.
