With the help of Tom Fornelli and Jerry Hinnen, the Eye On College Football Podcast is back for another round of discussing the CBS Sports Expert Picks for Week 14.

The Iron Bowl always feels big because of the intensity of the rivalry, but the stakes haven't been this high in decades as Alabama and Auburn face off in Jordan-Hare Stadium with the SEC West and, potentially, a BCS title on the line. We give this year's Iron Bowl a fair rundown from both sides before diving into a slate full of intriguing rivalry week matchups. The show runs a bit longer than usual, but we know you have the free time and there was just too much good football to cover.

After 13 weeks of selecting every Top 25 game against the spread, we have developed several unproven -- but highly entertaining -- theories about these teams. So kick back, relax and enjoy our preview of the best Week 13 action. Come for the picks, but stick around for "Locks and Quarantines," our way of breaking down the best bets and games you should avoid at all costs.
