Gus Malzahn and Auburn's football program met the buzzsaw that is Nick Saban and Alabama in Tuscaloosa this evening.
It wasn't pretty.
Auburn actually held strong for about two and a half quarters, but then No. 1 Alabama started to pull away.
The Crimson Tide ended up winning, 52-21, to improve to 12-0 on the season. The Tigers dropped to 7-5.
Malzahn was blunt with his post-game assessment. Video shows the Auburn head coach's interaction with his wife.
“Really got it handed to us tonight," he said.
Well, at least he was honest.
Auburn will now wait to see where it's headed in the postseason. Alabama, meanwhile, moves onto the SEC Championship Game, where it'll face Georgia.
