Auburn vs. Alabama: Live Scores, Analysis and Results
Auburn — 0
Alabama — 49
Thank you for joining us for the 77th edition of the Iron Bowl!
Here are 10 things we learned in the Tide's win over the Tigers.
It went as expected on Saturday afternoon in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Alabama dominated its arch-rival Auburn from start to finish. The Tide scored on their first seven possessions.
Alabama beat Auburn, 49-0. It was the second-most lopsided Iron Bowl in the series history.
AJ McCarron and the Alabama offense were nearly perfect until they were lifted after the first drive of the third quarter.
The Alabama defense was just as good. Auburn only had 163 total yards in Saturday's game.
The only bright spot for Auburn was Tre Mason joining the 1,000-yard rushing club and WR Emory Blake joining the 2,000-yard receiving club.
Auburn ends its season at 3-9 and will likely be searching for a new coach as early as Monday.
Alabama, on the other hand, will get ready to play the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship game next week at the Georgia Dome. That game will serve as a BCS National Championship semi-final. The winner will likely go to Miami to represent the SEC.
The Tide ends the regular season at 11-1 and as SEC West champions.
Congratulations, Alabama fans!

One other nail in the coffin for Chizik.
Final: No. 2 Alabama 49, Auburn 0. Tigers finish 3-9, worst record 2 seasons after national championship in AP era.— Ryan Wood (@AUBlog) November 24, 2012
That went about as everyone expected. There was never any doubt in this game.
With that, Auburn will go home until spring practice and Gene Chizik has probably coached his last game on Auburn's sideline.
With the final play, Tre Mason went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark on the season.
Alabama — 49
Auburn — 0
I think they want Chizik to stay.
Alabama students chanting: "Chizik! Chizik! Chizik!"— Aaron Brenner (@wareagleextra) November 24, 2012
Alabama at the end zone's doorstep once again.
Alabama will get the ball back with just over four minutes left.
Tre Mason gets Auburn out of its own end zone with a long run for a first down.
Auburn gets its second consecutive third down stop. Auburn will have another shot to not be shutout.
Times haven't changed much over the years.
Alabama-Ga means this is 36th straight year 1 of the 6 traditional powers wins SEC (AL, Aub, Tenn, FL, Ga, LSU).— Jon Solomon (@jonsol) November 24, 2012
Gene Chizik can be seen on the Auburn sidelines clapping after another shanked punt. Alabama head coach Nick Saban would be reaching for a heart to tear out of someone's chest if that happened with his team.
A vast difference in programs.
Auburn has ran under 50 offensive plays today. Still time left, but that is a far cry from the 70-plus plays a game it was running under Gus Malzahn.
Is Gene Chizik sure he doesn't regret his switch to a pro-style offense.
Do you mean there isn't a chance Auburn comes back?
Auburn loses 8 SEC games for 1st time ever. Tigers lost 7 in 1948, 1950, 1952 and 1998.— Jon Solomon (@jonsol) November 24, 2012
Breaking news: Alabama has a punter.
The Auburn defense is playing for the record books on this drive. A TD and a PAT would make the 2012 Iron Bowl the most lopsided game in series history.
That makes two of us.
Things I never thought I'd hear..."That's the end of the third quarter. Alabama 49. Auburn 0."— Aaron Suttles (@AaronSuttles) November 24, 2012
Interception by Alabama.
Jonathan Wallace attempted to throw into double coverage and Haha Clinton-Dix comes down with the ball.
A bright spot for Auburn today. Despite being targeted all year long, Blake reaches 2,000 yards.
And with that, Emory Blake, welcome to the 2,000-yard receiving club.— Aaron Brenner (@wareagleextra) November 24, 2012
End of the third quarter. Alabama — 49, Auburn — 0.
