2 Minute Drill: Auburn's Running Backs Getting Healthier For Iron Bowl

Auburn will rely on its running game to set the table Saturday in the Iron Bowl against Alabama.

Auburn, Ala.--Only twice this season have Auburn running backs Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson been full speed for the entire four quarters and you have to go all the way back to Arkansas State and Texas A&M early in the season to find those.

While Pettway likely won't be 100 percent and neither will Johnson, just having both players available is a huge bonus for the Auburn offense as they get ready to face the nation's top rush defense. Combining for 1,929 yards and 18 touchdowns, the sophomores have been instrumental in the Tigers' success and will be a key come Saturday.

Mark Murphy and Jason Caldwell from Inside The Auburn Tigers discuss the running backs being on the field and what that could mean for the Auburn offense in the Iron Bowl.
