WATCH: Alabama Arrive at Jordan-Hare Stadium Ahead of Iron Bowl
AUBURN -- Nearly two hours before the scheduled 2:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday, Alabama arrived at Jordan-Hare Stadium, home of the Auburn Tigers, for the teams' annual Iron Bowl matchup.
As the team exited its buses, many of the players, all of whom were dressed in business professional attire, listened to music. Running back Derrick Henry (around the 0:35 mark in the second video) appeared particularly fired up for the game, nodding his head along to the music coming through the headphones on his ears.
Alabama coach Nick Saban, for the most part, kept his head down as he headed into the stadium.
As is customary, the team buses received a police escort.
Alabama, ranked No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings, went on to beat Auburn, 29-13, Saturday in the 80th edition of the Iron Bowl. The Crimson Tide now leads the all-time series, 44-35-1.
Before Saturday, Alabama had not played at Jordan-Hare Stadium since its stunning last-second loss in 2013 -- a 34-28 Tigers victory.
Last season, the Crimson Tide beat Auburn in a 55-44 shootout at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
