The 2021 edition of the Iron Bowl was one for the history books. The Auburn Tigers jumped out to a 10-0 lead before Alabama did what Alabama does and came back to tie the game with 24 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
The Jordan-Hare Stadium crowd was speechless, but the Tigers still had a chance to knock off their most-hated rival in overtime. Punches were traded until Alabama quarterback Bryce Young found John Metchie III for the game-winning two-point conversion in the fourth overtime. The Tide escaped with a 24-22 win and kept their College Football Playoff hopes alive.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban was understandably exhausted after the game. That all change once he saw his wife.
Nick Saban Celebrates Iron Bowl Win With Miss Terry
The Alabama football team was pumped as they migrated to the locker room after the thrilling win. Wide receiver Slade Bolden looked ready to play another full game.
Saban was still processing the game in the middle of the conundrum. I imagine he was thinking about the upcoming film session and how this win will impact recruiting. Whatever was on his mind, he looked spent.
Throughout the video, Miss Terry was going absolutely nuts. As her husband turned the corner, they locked eyes and he cracked a smile. The First Couple of Alabama embraced for a celebratory hug and Miss Terry made sure he was the star of the show. Saban was smiling from ear to ear as he also hugged his daughter Kristen, who filmed the video and shared it on her Instagram account.
Saban has a reputation for being hard-nosed and doing nothing but eating and breathing football. Moments like these, as well as a sense of humor he displayed when talking about Miss Terry's ex-boyfriend, show the Crimson Tide head coach has a lot more to him.
