2010 National Championship
13th National Championship
1 Alabama vs. 2 Texas
37 - 21
January 7, 2010
Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena, CA
In 2010 Texas was the only team that stood in the way of Alabama getting their 13th National Championship and first under Nick Saban. Though Alabama eventually won by a commanding 16 points, the game was far from over as the 4th quarter drew to a close. With just two minutes remaining Cody handed off to Ingram, getting a touchdown that put them up two scores and all but guaranteed the championship.
1993 National Championship
2 Alabama vs. 1 Miami
34 - 13
January 1, 1993
Sugar Bowl, Lousiana Superdome, New Orleans, LA
Though both Alabama and Miami were undefeated, Miami was in the midst of their 90s dynasties and most believed they would win the national championship. Alabama routed Miami 34-13 intercepting Heisman winner Gino Torretta three times and getting their 12th national title. The stand out play, even though it was called back on offsides, was George Teague running down and stripping Lamar Thomas, foiling what looked like a sure touchdown for Miami.
1985 Iron Bowl
Alabama vs. 7 Auburn
25 - 23
November 30, 1985
Legion Field, Birmingham, AL
Alabama was unranked and Auburn ranked seventh in the nation when the two met in 1985 for the Iron Bowl. Auburn took the lead with under a minute left in the 4th quarter but Alabama didn't give up. Mike Shula hit Greg Richardson who ran the ball out at the 35 and Van Tiffin came on with only seconds to spare to try for a 52 yd field. With time expiring he hit the game winning field goal and etched "the kick" into Iron Bowl lore.
1979 Sugar Bowl
Goal Line Stand
2 Alabama vs. 1 Penn State
14 - 7
January 1, 1979
Lousiana Superdome, New Orleans, LA
Penn State was the favorite in the AP Polls and a slight favorite for the game, but Bear Bryant was confident in a win. Alabama was up in the 4th quarter when Joe Paterno's team made an impressive drive down the field and stopped just a half yard outside the end zone. Alabama held on two consecutive downs, refusing Penn State a touchdown and preserving the win for their 10th national championship.
