Did you notice?

• Per, check out something the person who will be lined up against Anfernee Jennings and Terrell Lewis said about Alabama: “At the end of the day, they’re a good team as a whole, but they’re not the same as the old Alabama team we’ve faced in the past,” Auburn left tackle Prince Tega Wanogho said. “I feel like we’re going to be able to do whatever we want. We just have to go out there with the mindset to prove ourselves and just play football.”

• Keep this tweet in mind:

• Defensive end Reggie Grimes II, the son of a former Alabama defensive lineman and Crimson Tide track athlete, committed to Oklahoma. Also, one-time Alabama commitment, offensive lineman Xavier Hill, committed to LSU.

• Just how good was Calvin Ridley’s game against the Saints?

On this date in Crimson Tide history:

November 29, 1894: Alabama fans are delirious in Montgomery after the Crimson Tide upsets Auburn 18-0 before a “throng” of 4,000 spectators. Flying fullback Eli Abbott, who weighed 140 pounds, starred for Alabama along with teammates William Bankhead, Frank Callahan and Allen McCants.

November 29, 1993: Cyrus Jones was born in Baltimore, Md.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:

"I'm happy, I really am happy. I was happy and dancing in the locker room. Miss Terry gave me a big kiss coming up here. I was real happy about that." – Nick Saban after Alabama defeated Auburn 36-0 on this date in 2008 to end a six-game losing streak in the Iron Bowl.
