AUBURN, Ala.  Auburn moved up a spot Sunday in the Associated Press and coaches polls heading into Saturday's Iron Bowl matchup Alabama.

The AP poll said it will be matchup between No. 15 Auburn and No. 2 Alabama. The coaches say it's No. 16 versus No. 1. Auburn should be used to that kind of matchup. The Tigers had played four of last week's Top 12 teams ranked in the College Football Playoff standings, and all on the road, going into Saturday's 31-7 win over Samford.

The new College Football Playoff standings, which had Auburn 14th last week, will be released Tuesday night.

Auburn, at 8-3, remains the highest ranked three-loss team. The Tigers tuned up for Alabama in its win over Samford in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

"It does a great part getting our confidence back and also allows us to get things polished up and know what we need to do going into next game," said linebacker Kris Frost. "We took this game just how we were supposed to take it. We knew this was an important game to get back and make us better and prepare us going into next week."

Next week is here.

"Everybody takes it up a notch when it's Bama week," Frost said. "We're going to be ready when it comes time. Our attitudes are already right about it and everybody's focused about beating Bama."
