After Alabama football beats Tennessee—something that has become an annual occurrence—the Crimson Tide smoke cigars in the locker room. Former Vols head coach Butch Jones got his first chance today.

The Crimson Tide jumped all over Tennessee at Neyland Stadium, winning 58-21.

Jones was fired by Tennessee after 10 games last season. He was 0-5 in games against Alabama. A few of those games were relatively close, but they often went about how today's did, albeit with fewer points from the winning side.

After the win, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa led his teammates in giving Jones a Gatorade bath.

In the locker room, Butch Jones got that elusive victory cigar.

Redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Chris Owens posted a picture of Butch Jones in the locker room.

Earlier this week, Josh Jacobs joked that the team wanted to get Jones his first post-Alabama-Tennessee cigar.

Mission accomplished for the Tide.
