Crimson Replay lists nine. How would you rank these?
Miami game should be #1. We were a 2 TD underdog for that game. No one thought we would have a chance in that game.
Cool article. I wasn't alive for most so I don't really know but that upset in The Swamp in 99 was probably the biggest I've seen. I believe we were 18 point dogs, lost to La Tech a couple weeks before, and Florida hadn't lost at home in forever. Amazing game to watch.
My favorite to see in person was 05 Florida or 08 UGA. Both were so completely dominant it was hard to believe.
I wasn't around in 1926 when we beat Washington 20-19, but most football historians say that that game put Southern football on the map and therefore was the greatest upset of all-time. In my lifetime, the 1971 upset of USC in LA is the most unforgettable.
1960 Alabama Ga Tech behind 15-0 at half ...Bama wins 16-15 with time running out O'Dell knuckle ball field goal...RTR
For my purposes, it's difficult to rank these because each of them meant something different and distinct in Bama history. Probably the most meaningful in my personal memory was the Southern Cal game of 1971. And the most shocking was the 1993 Sugar Bowl.
What was the line on the 2001 Auburn game?
I believe Bama was 4-5 and Watts was injured going into it.
I was at that game. My heart stopped when we missed the XP on OT... wait there's a flag... The hangover didn't hurt as much as it would have if we'd let that one slip through our fingers. I was friends with a bunch of UF fans at the time (I had just finished grad school there) and I was very worried about the SECCG rematch. Millons and Alexander ensured I didn't have to listen to my buddies talk $hit.
Any upset list for Alabama football is incomplete without the 1922 9-7 victory over Penn. That singular game put southern college football on the map. In fact, that would should be number 1 alongside the 1926 Rose Bowl victory over Washington.
