Alabama scored again on their next possession after another 10-play drive that 61 yards. Several decent passes interspersed with some T.J. Yeldon rushes kept the drive moving down the field. Yeldon got the touchdown with a 2-yard rush with 5 minutes remaining in the first quarter.

At the beginning of the second quarter, Alabama returned to the endzone. Two big plays propelled the Tide down the field in the 6-play drive for 88 yards. Eddie Lacy managed to break free to rush 32 yards to the the Auburn 37 yard line. On the following play, Quarterback A.J. McCarron landed a pass in the arms of Amari Cooper to cover the remaining 37 yards with 12:38 before before the half.

The Tide was able to find three more touchdowns in the 3rd quarter. McCarron landed a pass into the arms of Kevin Norwood for 7 yards and the touchdown around the 8:40 mark. With just under 5 minutes, Eddie Lacy got another touchdown after a 1-yard rush. The last touchdown came after Alabama's Dee Milliner recovered an Auburn fumble and McCarron was able to connect to Amari Cooper for a 29-yard touchdown with 31 seconds remaining in the half.
