Sean White to reportedly return for Auburn's bowl game

The defense kept the game under control, and when the Crimson Tide offense did finally wake up, Alabama cruised to an easy 30-12 victory over its arch rival.

"Offensively, we just didn't get first downs, we just didn't get it done", coach Gus Malzahn said. Auburn managed to stick around by scoring a couple field goals in the second quarter, but the Tide managed to get a 13-9 lead at halftime. The defense pushed its string of quarters without allowing a touchdown to 14-plus and shut down the league's top running game. Saturday's game with Auburn was Alabama's 592nd all-time SEC game and the Tide has an official record of 394-167-20 (.682), accounting for forfeiture and vacated games.

Jeremy Johnson is No. 16 Auburn's starting quarterback against top-ranked Alabama. "I don't want to minimize the impact of an undefeated season, but I also think there's a lot more out there for this team ..."

Hurts displayed the same poise in overcoming two first-half interceptions that has helped him lead the Tide into the SEC championship game.

Hurts completed 27 of 36 passes for 286 yards, but suffered two interceptions.

For the third straight year, the Alabama Crimson Tide have won the Iron Bowl.

"We had some really, really challenging field position situations in this game, and our players responded really well to it", Alabama Coach Nick Saban said.

In a game plan that resembled a confounding consistent set of revolving quarterback substitutions, Malzahn said it was "part of our plan" to have four different players take the snap from center in a first half where they gained just 31 yards and one first down Saturday.

Bo Scarbrough led the Tide in rushing with 17 carries for 90 yards, Harris carried 9 times for 47, Jalen Hurts 12-37, and Josh Jacobs 5-32. Stewart did just that, finishing with a career-high 10 catches that went for 127 yards and a touchdown.

The truth is, even if Alabama somehow gets upset by Florida in Atlanta, this team is still going to the College Football Playoff.

Auburn failed to muster much offense for the second straight SEC game.

The quarterback that piloted Auburn to six straight wins this year will reportedly be back for the bowl game.

The Badgers lifted Paul Bunyan's Axe again, the trophy that goes to the victor in the most-played rivalry in major college football. Wisconsin (10-3, 7-2 Big Ten) turned in a stalwart defensive effort in the second half after getting outplayed in the first and falling behind by 10 points at halftime. He was 10 of 23 for 170 yards and a touchdown in last season's game, which Alabama won 29-13.

"He means a lot to our offense", tight end O.J. The Nittany Lions beat the Buckeyes, 24-20, at home October 22.

Stephen Johnson then led Kentucky (7-5) downfield and into position for MacGinnis' game-winning kick, which ended Kentucky's five-game losing streak in the series.

Jackson likely could have wrapped up the Heisman with his record-setting day, but a second-consecutive loss might impact the race.

Searcy's 6-yard touchdown off a busted play capped a fourth-quarter comeback for the Yellow Jackets (8-4). The updated time that has elapsed since Texas A&M scored a touchdown in the third quarter on October 22 is 267 minutes and 54 seconds.

New Hampshire 64, Lehigh 21 - Dalton Crossan rushed 24 times for 184 yards and had three total TDs, and the Wildcats (8-4) routed the Mountain Hawks (9-3) in the first round of the FCS playoffs in Durham, N.H. "But I still really love our team". I'm proud of our seniors for the career that they've had here. The Commodores (6-6, 3-5) earned a bowl berth for the first time since 2013 thanks to their Academic Progress Rate (APR) score before kickoff. "He's from the state also, so it's a little more personal".
