Alabama is off to a hot start in the 2010 Iron Bowl. With a 24-0 lead midway through the second quarter, the Crimson Tide have completely dictated the pace of this game offensively, and refused to allow Cam Newton to get comfortable on defense. Auburn's defensive backs are widely accepted as the weakest aspect of the second-ranked team in the nation, but head coach Gene Chizik must have expected more than what they have given so far. Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy has already completed 13 of 16 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns. One of those scores was a 68 yard strike to Julio Jones, who did not have much trouble losing the Auburn defenders on the way to the end zone.
