Alabama wins record-setting Iron Bowl

The ending wasn’t quite as memorable as the 2013 Iron Bowl, but it was certainly a record-setting Iron Bowl that will go down in history.

Top-ranked Alabama tied an Iron Bowl record by scoring 55 points. The Crimson Tide also scored 55 points in a 55-0 win over Auburn in 1948.

The two teams combined for 99 points, setting an Iron Bowl record for combined points. They also combined for an Iron Bowl-record 1,169 yards.

There were plenty of offensive stars in this game, but perhaps the star of stars was Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper, who set an Iron Bowl record with 224 receiving yards.

The 224 yards tied Cooper’s own school record for any game. He also set a school record with his 14th career 100-yard receiving game.

Cooper wasn’t the only stud receiver in this game. Auburn's Sammie Coates had 206 receiving yards, the second most in Iron Bowl history.

Alabama quarterback Blake Sims struggled early with three interceptions, but after his third interception, he completed 10 of 12 passes with three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown.

In the loss, Nick Marshall set a school record with 456 passing yards.

The 44 points for Auburn are the most Alabama has ever allowed in a win.

The Tide will try to repeat the success of the past five Iron Bowl winners: Each of those five reached the national championship game, and four of the five won the title.

First, the Tide will face Missouri next Saturday in the SEC championship game.
