Alabama running back Derrick Henry started his Iron Bowl week by making a national appearance on The Dan Patrick Show.

The Heisman front-runner tied a school record over the weekend when he scored two touchdowns on just nine carries against Charleston Southern. His 21 rushing touchdowns this season matches Trent Richardson in 2011.

Host Dan Patrick asked him about the upcoming Iron Bowl to which Henry only complimented the Auburn team. He also asked about Thanksgiving and whether or not the team monitored the players' eating this week.

Alabama will begin preparations for the Iron Bowl today before getting a break on Thursday for the holiday.
