TUSCALOOSA, Ala -- A look at the good and the bad from No. 2 Alabama's 49-0 throttling of in-state rival Auburn at home on Saturday.

THE GOOD
1. Dominating from the start: There wasn't a safe place for Auburn to turn in Bryant-Denny Stadium. As soon as Alabama won the toss and elected to receive, the game was over. Alabama scored on its first seven drives. Auburn would end up with just as many first downs for the entire game. The offense was balanced, the defense stingy. From start to finish, Alabama was the better team. It was just the 60 minutes of football Nick Saban was hoping for with No. 3 Georgia on the horizon.
