Notes:

  • Alabama scored a touchdown on its opening drive for the eighth time in eight games this season. This was the longest drive of the eight, occupying 4:02 of game time with nine plays. On the touchdown Tua Tagovailoa had plenty of time, moved around in the pocket and tossed a perfect precision pass to Jerry Jeudy, the tenth touchdown between the two this year.
  • Xavier McKinney crushed Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano on the third play of the Volunteers’ opening drive, forcing a fumble that was recovered by Christian Miller. Josh Jacobs found the end zone two plays later, extending Alabama’s lead to 14-0 within the first five minutes of the game.
  • On the first play of Alabama’s next drive, Tagovailoa threw one of his best passes of the season to Jaylen Waddle on a crossing route. No one could catch Waddle down the sideline as he streaked his way to the end zone for a 77-yard touchdown.
  • Damien Harris capped a nine-play, 93-yard drive with a 3-yard score. The Crimson Tide led 28-0 with 3:31 left in the first quarter.
  • Jacobs scored again late in the second quarter from two yards out. It was his eighth touchdown this season and marked the third multi-touchdown game of his career.
  • On the first play of the second half, Tennessee quarterback Keller Chryst tripped and fell into his own end zone, resulting in a safety for Alabama, its second in two games. That made the score 44-14.
  • Tennessee’s Jauan Jennings finished with 102 receiving yards on six catches, becoming the first player with 100+ receiving yards against Alabama since last year’s Iron Bowl.
