KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Under Nick Saban, Alabama players only know one way to react after playing in its annual meeting with Tennessee. It helps that the Crimson Tide has won it every year he's been in charge.

Saturday's 34-20 win over the Volunteers marks the team's eighth straight in the series against its permanent cross-divisional rival from the SEC East. Per tradition, players and coaches of the winning team celebrate the victory with a cigar.

Here are some photos from the locker room of Alabama players celebrating with their cigars either in hand or mouth:
