A nail biter all the way until the end, Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide performed in the most competitive championship game in recent history. In the fourth quarter, only 10:34 remained on the clock and the score was tied 24 to 24. A rather unconventional move, Saban calls for an onside kick to shake things up and take a risk. It paid off. This onside kick was quite the gamble, but Crimson Tide junior kicker Adam Griffith kicked the ball about 14 yards to catch Clemson completely off guard. A redshirt freshman defensive back, Marlon Humphrey, snagged the ball to keep Bama in possession.

This devilishly successful play propelled the Crimson Tide into scoring multiple times for the win. This year’s win gives the Crimson Tide a total of 16 national championship titles since 1925. In fact, that is the fifth title brought home by Head Coach Nick Saban. This man, seemingly, cannot be stopped! The only other coach to beat Saban is Bear Bryant, who won titles in 1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978 and 1979 for a total of six. Needless to say, the Alabama Crimson Tide is a great team with a large and loyal following.
