TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- University of Alabama running back Josh Jacobs couldn't help himself. Everyone knows that the tradition in the Third Saturday of October rivalry is for the winning side to break out victory cigars, which the Crimson Tide has done 11 straight times.
That included five straight losses for former Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who is now an Alabama analyst.
"We kind of joke with him about the situation," Jacobs said. "He's, you know, never smoked the cigar before. We're trying to make that a goal of his."
