At least Auburn and West Virginia will be at home when they play their toughest games of the season this weekend.

Both undefeated teams face their toughest tests Saturday. Sixth-ranked Auburn plays No. 11 Alabama in the Southeastern Conference and No. 9 West Virginia meets No. 4 Miami in the Big East.Although Auburn (10-0) and West Virginia (9-0) are playing on home fields, the Tigers are only a 1-point favorite and the Mountaineers are a 51/2-point underdog. That's understandable considering that Alabama is the defending national champion and Miami has won four titles in the last 10 years.

Alabama is going to the SEC championship game on Dec. 4, but Auburn is barred from postseason play because of NCAA probation. So the always intense game will mean even more to the Tigers, who are playing Alabama at home for only the second time since the series started in 1892.

Alabama (8-1-1) has struggled since quarterback Jay Barker hurt his shoulder against Mississippi on Oct. 23. Barker, who is 23-0-1 as a starter, will play against Auburn but the Tide will still struggle . . . AUBURN 21-17.

West Virginia is off to it best start since 1988, when it lost to Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl. But the Mountaineers haven't played anyone like Miami (8-1), which must win to keep alive its slim hopes of another national title . . . MIAMI 28-21.
