Crimson Tide Football:

The No. 1 ranked University of Alabama football team closed out its regular season with a 30-12 home win over No. 13 Auburn in front of a sold-out 101,821 crowd in Bryant-Denny Stadium.

As a team, Alabama covered 501 yards in total offense on 81 plays while the Crimson Tide defense held Auburn to 182 yards on 45 plays, including just one first down in the first half and seven total. 

Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts through for 286 yards on 27-of-36 passing, with two interceptions and two touchdowns. Hurts also scored a rushing touchdown.

Senior kicker Adam Griffith drove home all three of his field goal attempts and three extra points. Sophomore running back Bo Scarbrough led the team in rushing with 90 rumbling yards on 17 carries. 

Junior wide receiver ArDarius Stewart notched a 100-plus yard receiving day, tallying 127 yards and a touchdown on 10 catches.

Senior linebacker Reuben Foster and junior linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton both accounted for eight stops on the day, with Hamilton also grabbing an interception to stymie Auburn's most productive drive of the second half. Senior linebacker accounted for six tackles, including a sack for a loss of five yards.

Undefeated Alabama enters the postseason next Saturday, December 3, by facing the Florida Gators in Atlanta, Ga., in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. The game will be televised by CBS beginning at 3 p.m. CT at the Georgia Dome.
