As the saying goes, that escalated quickly.
Alabama put on a clinic at home in Week 8 with a 45-7 throttling off Tennessee.
Jalen Hurts threw for 198 yards and Tua Tagovailoa tossed for another 134 yards via the air as five different Crimson Tide players scored touchdowns.
Bo Scarbrough led that charge with a pair of touchdowns.
Beating a rival quite handily is always satisfactory. Beating them for the 11th straight time is even better.
Afterward, Tide fans couldn’t help from taking digs at Tennessee and its maligned coach, Butch Jones.
