NCAA Football: Alabama at Auburn Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Well, we’ve got a guaranteed 14 games to play this season, and maybe 15 if things go the right way. It’s such a hassle playing in this SEC Championship Game this coming Saturday, what with missing out on that key recruiting time and all.

At least Nick Saban can get to his favorite activity a little earlier than normal.

Auburn had itself quite an Iron Bowl, with a lot happening. Let’s unwrap it.

First up, we won, duh.

Second, Ryan Davis set an important record for the Tigers — the single-season reception record.

I didn’t even notice this until today, but it’s pretty awesome.

And his quarterback, Jarrett Stidham, completed 75% of his passes against the Tide, something not accomplished since Johnny Manziel did it five years ago.

Now for some quotes from last night’s press availability with Kevin Steele and Chip Lindsey.

Auburn’s defense was fantastic last night, dominating Alabama and confusing the hell out of Jalen Hurts. As for the offense, I think everyone’s biggest worry is the health of Kerryon Johnson.

And finally, that was the final game for the old press box. Next year, it’ll be moved into the corner of the endzone. Just think of the radio calls and stories that have been made right in that press box. It’s seen a lot.

It was a good game for that press box to go out on. One of the best!

Until later, War Eagle!
