Takeaways from Auburn’s 49-27 loss to No. 8 Alabama

Auburn lost to Alabama by 22 points Saturday night in the 87th Iron Bowl.

Strangely, it didn’t feel like a three-point loss.

Auburn interim coach Cadillac Williams’ time as headman is over — and it didn’t end with a whimper.

The Tigers haven’t had a hard-fought loss since last season’s Iron Bowl. And tonight it was 49-27.

Here are five takeaways from the Iron Bowl.
