Alabama visits Auburn on November 25.

Following a three-and-out by the Tide offense, the Bulldogs again drove the length of the field, but were forced to into a Jace Christmann 25-yard field goal to increase the margin to a seven-point game.

Pierschbacher would also clear the way for Damien Harris to have a 1,000-yard season (1,037) and the Tide to have its second consecutive national title game appearance of the College Football Playoff era. The previous four losses by top-ranked teams in the CFP rankings were by a combined 21 points, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Alabama's Week 11 victory over Mississippi State needed a game-winning touchdown with under 30 seconds remaining to clinch the Tide's closest win of the season, 31-24.

The Bulldogs then took the ball straight down the field, running up an 11-play, 73-yard drive that chewed up almost six-and-a-half minutes of the first half clock, punctuated by Williams' second rushing touchdown, this time from five yards out.

Alabama redshirt junior LG Ross Pierschbacher is expected to miss 2-4 weeks due to a high ankle sprain. Alabama has a cupcake game against Mercer, but the biggest game of the season looms after that when the Crimson Tide will face Auburn.

"It's going to be a struggle", Salmons said of the Alabama-Auburn game.
