Auburn (20-24, 7-14) will take on Alabama (25-20, 10-11) in a key SEC series for both teams this weekend in Tuscaloosa. Winners of two of their last three series, the Tigers are expected to be without leading hitter Josh Palacios again this weekend as he continues to be bothered by a sore wrist. Coach Butch Thompson talks about that, the challenge of Alabama's pitching staff, and much more.

Saturday: Justin Camp (3-3, 3.63) vs. Jake Walters (4-3, 1.99)
Sunday: TBA vs. Nick Eicholtz (3-2, 1.89)
