Nick Saban breaks down Xs and Os of key Alabama TD in Iron Bowl
Nick Saban wasn’t able to coach Alabama in the Iron Bowl due to COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean he took the night off.
Shortly after the Tide’s 42-13 win over Auburn, Saban was already breaking down film on his postgame show.
In the video below, Saban walks fans through this touchdown pass from Mac Jones. He covers everything — formation, pre-snap reads, offensive line schemes and Jones’ perfect execution on the throw.

That was one of five touchdown passes on the day from Jones. He also completed 18-0f-26 passes for 302 yards.
It was complete domination from Alabama from start to finish, as the Tide either outscored or matched the Tigers’ scoring output in all four quarters.
Receiver Devonta Smith was Jones’ most popular target. He caught seven passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. He continues to build on his record number of touchdown catches in the SEC.
Running back Najee Harris was also excellent, rushing 11 times for 96 yards and a score.
Alabama is 8-0 and will face LSU on Dec. 5.
