TUSCALOOSA — Alabama extended its basketball win streak to seven straight on Saturday, leading by as many as 25 points in the first half of a 90-59 win over Arkansas. Read the full story
Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, cornerback Patrick Surtain, receiver Jaylen Waddle and defensive lineman Christian Barmore announced today they are headed to the NFL.
Mac Jones threw for 464 yards in Alabama's 52-24 win over Ohio State, which is a College Football Playoff record, breaking the mark of 463 that Burrow set last year. Jones also threw five touchdown passes.
"I think (Waddle) was 100 percent fast exploding, straight line," Saban said. "Had a difficult time cutting off of that foot and slowing down. Those are the two things, that decelerating and cutting off of that foot, were the two issues for him."
Nick Saban met with reporters through video conference this morning, just hours after Alabama dispatched Ohio State. Although Saban has coached six other national champions — including five more at Alabama — this team stood out as special to him.
In a year in which COVID-19 dominated, Nick Saban pulled off his best coaching job as Alabama's head coach, guiding the Crimson Tide to an unbeaten season and another national title.
Nick Saban now has seven national titles, which is a major college football record. He was tied with former Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, who had six in 1961-79.
This morning in a video conference with reporters, Alabama's DeVonta Smith said: "Just that the Heisman wasn't something that I came back for. I came back to get a degree and to win a national championship."
True to form, Alabama won Monday’s College Football Playoff national championship game amid an offensive onslaught, burying Ohio State and cruising to a 52-24 win.
Jaylen Waddle ran several 40-yard sprints with the trainer overseeing his work. Waddle wore a black jersey with his No. 17 on the front and back.
The Alabama men’s basketball team beat Auburn 94-90 at Auburn Arena on Saturday to raise its record to 4-0 in the SEC. The Crimson Tide outscored AU 5-0 in the final 2:15.
A victory Monday over Ohio State would give Nick Saban seven national championships, and that'll break him out of a tie with Paul "Bear" Bryant for the most in major college football history.
Auburn is scheduled to host Alabama on Saturday at 11 a.m. (ESPN2). A win would give the Tigers a much-needed confidence boost, but at this point, it appears Alabama has taken the mantle of the state’s best basketball team.
As Nick Saban and Alabama continue the process while preparing for Monday’s game against Ohio State, here are some things the staff would do well to gain in its new offensive coordinator.
Once again, Alabama is going into its most important game with a coach on his way out, as offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will take over at Texas after Monday’s national championship game. This dynamic has plagued Alabama in previous years.
We should've seen this coming three years ago. We allowed the other sparkling objects in Alabama's offense to mesmerize us, instead of this Smith guy.
A substantial favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, Alabama's DeVonta Smith won the award tonight in a nationally televised ceremony.
Alabama and Ohio State have met only four times in their histories. All three of the meetings since 1986 have been settled by seven points or fewer.
