Christmas came early in Knoxville, and Phil Fulmer didnít even have to dress up like Santa Claus. Heisman front-runner Tua Tagovailoa lit up the Vols like a Yuletide tree en route to a 58-21 win for top-ranked Alabama (8-0, 5-0 SEC), the Tideís school record 12th straight win over its No. 2 rival.
Alabamaís 58 points in the win over Tennessee are the most by the Crimson Tide in the 101-game history of the series. The previous record was 56 in a 56-28 win in 1986 in Knoxville. Alabamaís only other game with more than 50 points came in a 51-0 win over the Vols in Birmingham in 1906. The Tideís total is also the most scored by either team in series history.
