Saban previously coached in the National Football League with the Miami Dolphins, but only lasted two seasons as the Dolphins failed to make the playoffs during his brief tenure. He made the most of his six carries, finishing with a team-high 64 yards.
Remember back three years ago, when we debated whether Urban Meyer or Saban was the best active coach? But again, the Bulldogs couldn't convert and were forced to rely on a 27-yard field goal to push the lead to 6-0. The Tide has won 16 straight home openers.

No. 1 Alabama fell to sixth-ranked Auburn 26-14 in the 82nd Iron Bowl.

Mariota's protege and fellow Hawaii native, Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa, led the Crimson Tide to an overtime win over Georgia in the title game, throwing three TD passes in the second half, including the game victor, after coming off the bench.
