COACHES AND STAFF Saban has compiled a 154-55-1 (.737) record as a college head coach and has gone 61-7 (.897) in the past five seasons in Tuscaloosa, which includes a 35-5 mark in regular-season conference play. In 2012, the Tide reached the 10-win milestone for the fifth consecutive season under Saban. With another SEC Championship win and BCS National Championship Game victory last season, Saban is now 8-1 all-time in conference or national championship games. Alabama remained at the forefront of the college football world in 2012 with an explosive offense and a retooled defense that maintained its place as the most dominant units in the nation. The Crimson Tide won the program’s 23rd SEC Championship (the most in league history) with a victory over Georgia that propelled Alabama into the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game, where they soundly defeated Notre Dame by a score of 42-14 to record the school’s 15th national title. For his efforts following the season, Saban was named the Bobby Bowden National Coach of the Year. The Alabama defense lead the nation in rush defense (76.36 ypg), total defense (250.0 ypg), and scoring defense (10.93 ppg) in 2012. The Tide offense ranked 12th nationally in scoring at 38.71 points per game and

16th nationally in rushing at 227.5 yards per game. The Crimson Tide set a school record with 542 points scored in 2012. In addition, Alabama extended a streak of consecutive weeks in the AP Top 25 to 81 weeks, the longest in school history. The Crimson Tide featured four first-team AllAmericans in 2012, including two along the offensive line in center Barrett Jones and left guard Chance Warmack. A pair of defensive standouts also earned All-America honors in cornerback Dee Milliner and linebacker C.J. Mosley. Jones captured the Rimington Trophy, which goes to the nation’s best center, and the prestigious Campbell Award, given to the studentathlete that best combines performances on the field, success in the classroom and service away from the field. The 2012 senior class set the school and SEC record for wins while garnering a 49-5 record since 2009, a mark that tied Nebraska’s 49 wins from 199497. It also broke the Cornhuskers record (60 wins from 1993-97) for the most in major college football victories five-year period with 61 (2008-12). The 2011 squad produced one of the most dominant defenses in the history of college football and captured Alabama’s 14th national championship with a 21-0 victory over LSU in the BCS National Championship Game. The Tide defense led the nation in all major categories, becoming the second team since national statistics began being kept and the first since 1986 (Oklahoma) to accomplish this feat. Alabama allowed only 8.2 points per game, 183.6 total yards, 72.2 rushing yards, 111.5 passing yards and a 83.7 pass efficiency defense. Alabama finished with a 12-1 record.

COACH SABAN

Saban’s 2011 senior class won 48 games over the span of four seasons (2008-11). Seven members of the 2011 Crimson Tide (including five on defense) were recognized as first-team All-Americans by major media outlets, while Barrett Jones took home Alabama’s third Outland Trophy and Heisman Trophy finalist Trent Richardson received UA’s first Doak Walker Award. The team was recognized with the Disney Spirit Award, which was presented to snapper Carson Tinker, for the team’s response to the

community following the tornado that devastated Tuscaloosa on April 27, 2011. Jones also captured the ARA Sportsmanship Award and the Wuerffel Trophy. Saban’s efforts also earned him the Bobby Bowden National Coach of the Year Award, the second such honor in the past three years. The Tide also had extensive success in the classroom with 38 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections (a league record) and produced an Academic All-American in Jones. Despite a young roster that listed only eight scholarship seniors, the 2010 Alabama team finished with its third consecutive 10-win season following a dominant 49-7 win over Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl. Five players were named first team All-SEC by either the AP or the league coaches, while six more earned second team All-SEC honors. Most impressively, two players (quarterback Greg McElroy and Barrett Jones) were named first-team CoSIDA/ESPN Academic All-Americans, which marked two consecutive years in which Alabama boasted two of the three ESPN Academic All-Americans in the SEC. McElroy, the ESPN Academic All-American of the Year, was named a National Football Foundation National-ScholarAthlete as a finalist for the Campbell Trophy. The 2009 season at Alabama turned out to be one of the most memorable in program history as the Tide compiled a perfect 14-0 mark and won the 2009 BCS National Championship by defeating Texas by a score of 37-21 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Alabama earned a spot in the title game with a resounding 3213 win over defending national champion Florida in the SEC Championship Game as the Tide moved to No. 1 in both major polls. The SEC championship was the program’s 22nd. On December 12, 2009, more history was made for both Alabama and Saban when running back Mark Ingram became the first Heisman Trophy winner for both. Saban’s 2009 squad also was prominent when it came to other honors, as Rolando McClain received the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker and six players earned first-team AP All-America status – a college football record.

After the perfect season concluded, Saban was presented with the first Bobby Bowden National Coach of the Year Award. In addition to the on-field success, the 2009 Tide active roster featured a nation’s-best 13 players who already had graduated. That number increased to 22 players with degrees for the bowl game. Saban’s first UA team finished 7-6 in 2007, but the 2008 season saw a vastly improved Alabama squad take the field. Saban’s influence had taken hold in Tuscaloosa and – behind a small and united senior class along with a talented group of newcomers – the Tide returned to national prominence. Alabama developed a reputation as the most physical football team in the country and methodically dominated the competition. Saban produced the largest win increase from year one to year two in school history, as the Tide went from a seven-win team in 2007 to 12 wins in 2008. Alabama swept through the regular season schedule with a 12-0 record, moving to No. 1 in all of the polls and capturing the SEC Western Division Championship before falling late to Florida in a hard-fought SEC Championship Game. The team’s efforts earned them a trip to the Allstate Sugar Bowl for the 13th time in school history. Saban was named the 2008 Home Depot Coach of the Year at the ESPN Awards Show in Orlando and won several other national coach-of-the-year honors including the FWAA/ Eddie Robinson, Associated Press, The Sporting News, Walter Camp Football Foundation, and Liberty Mutual.

with a win over Colorado in the Independence Bowl – no doubt carried into spring and summer preparations for the 2008 run. The win also continued an impressive streak for Saban as he has never had a losing season as a college head coach. Of the six losses in 2007, none was by more than seven points. In addition to an improvement in the winloss column from the year prior, the 2008 signing class was rated by many analysts as the best in the country. Off the field, the focus on academics by Saban and his staff made an immediate impact as the 2007 team put together one of the finest academic fall semesters in school history. The freshman class set a solid foundation for their future at UA as they led the way with an impressive combined GPA of 3.10 in the fall. Before arriving in Tuscaloosa, Saban’s most recent college head coaching stint was a five-season run at LSU which produced a record of 48-16 (.750), one national championship (2003), two Southeastern Conference championships, three SEC West Division championships, and a 3-2 record in bowl games, including two Sugar Bowl victories and a Peach Bowl win. The Tigers constructed a 28-12 (.700) record against SEC opponents under Saban’s guidance. He was named the 2003 National Coach of the Year by the Associated Press and earned both the Paul W. “Bear” Bryant National Coach of the Year Award and the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award by the Football Writers Association of America. Saban was named SEC Coach of the Year twice (by The Birmingham News in 2001 and by the Associated Press in 2003) while at LSU.

COACH SABAN

Saban took over the Alabama program after serving two seasons at the helm of the Miami Dolphins. Saban’s teams showed marked improvement over the unit he inherited. Taking over a team that finished 4-12 in 2004, Saban led the 2005 Dolphins to a 9-7 record, the third-biggest turnaround in the NFL that season and the second-highest victory turnaround for a Dolphins team in any non-strike season. Most impressively, the Dolphins finished 2005 on a six-game winning streak to end the year, the longest streak in the NFL that season. Prior to his stint at Miami, Saban’s impact on the LSU program transcended the success on the field. His commitment to building the total program, placing education first and instilling discipline with responsibility on and off the field transformed the Tigers into a force on the national stage. LSU produced 84 Academic all-SEC honorees in Saban’s five seasons, including 25 members of the 2003 National Championship squad. LSU’s graduation rate for football players improved dramatically under his watch and two players – offensive tackle Rodney Reed (2002 and 2003) and offensive lineman Rudy Niswanger (2004) – earned first-team Academic All-America honors. Linebacker Bradie James earned a postgraduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation (2003). Saban also spearheaded a $15 million fundraising effort to fund a new academic center for student-athletes at LSU, and he and his players were active in community involvement in the Baton Rouge area, taking part in community service projects, visiting schools to mentor children, and taking time to visit local hospitals on a

regular basis. More than 50 of Saban’s LSU players earned their college degrees, in addition to 28 who were selected in the NFL draft (including seven in both 2004 and 2006).

Tigers capped the season with a 47-34 defeat of Big Ten champion Illinois in the Sugar Bowl, LSU’s first victory in a New Year’s Day bowl game since 1968.

Named head coach at LSU on Nov. 30, 1999, he led an immediate turnaround of a program that had suffered through seven losing seasons during the 1990s. His 48 victories over five seasons were the third-most among Division I-A head coaches during that time. Saban, Paul Dietzel and current LSU head coach Les Miles are the only coaches in the program’s history to post multiple 10-win seasons. Saban, Dietzel and Bernie Moore are the only head coaches in Tiger history to win two SEC championships.

Stifling defense was the trademark of the 2002 Tigers. LSU posted an 8-5 record and a second consecutive New Year’s Day bowl appearance. The Tigers, who faced Texas in the Cotton Bowl, held opponents to under 275 yards per game through the season’s first six games and scored a school-record 30 or more points in six straight games. LSU just missed winning a second consecutive SEC West title, as a last-minute comeback by Arkansas in the regularseason finale prevented LSU from another appearance in the SEC Championship Game. That LSU team overcame the mid-season loss of starting quarterback Matt Mauck, free safety Damien James and Toefield in successive weeks to make a run at an SEC Western Division title.

Saban’s 2000 Tigers rebounded from two straight seasons to post an 8-4 record, capped by a 31-20 win over 15thranked Georgia Tech in the Peach Bowl. Home victories over Tennessee, Mississippi State and Alabama highlighted the season, along with a key road win at Mississippi. The 2001 Tigers improved to 10-3 overall and won the program’s first outright SEC title since 1986 with a 31-20 win over second-ranked Tennessee in the SEC Championship game. An impressive second half against the Volunteers was a trademark of Saban’s coaching acumen, as the Tigers outscored the Vols 21-3 in the final half to erase a 17-10 deficit. LSU won the game despite the absence of starting quarterback Rohan Davey and running back LaBrandon Toefield. Sparked by one of the most prolific offenses in the nation, a unit that averaged 451.5 yards per game, the

Saban’s philosophy of “out of yourself and into the team” paid huge dividends in 2003. The Tigers produced a 13-1 record, won their second SEC championship and earned the school’s second national championship with a squad that was among the nation’s most dominant on both sides of the line of scrimmage. The LSU offense scored a school-record 475 points (33.9 per game) while holding 13 of 14 opponents to fewer than 20 points. LSU’s defense ranked first nationally in points allowed per game (11.0) and total defense (252.0 yards per game). After a 7-1 start, LSU ended the season with six dominating victories by an average margin of 35-10. An impressive 34-13 victory over Georgia in the SEC title game paved LSU’s way to an appearance in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) Championship Game against top-ranked Oklahoma. The

COACHES AND STAFF Tigers produced a dominant defensive effort against the Sooners in the Sugar Bowl, limiting the Sooners to 154 yards of total offense in a 21-14 victory. His final LSU team in 2004 overcame the loss of 13 players from the 2003 squad who went on to NFL rosters, posting a 9-3 record while producing the SEC’s best rushing offense (200.7 yards per game). The Tiger defense ranked third nationally during the regular season in total defense (249.9 yards per game) and passing defense (145.4 yards per game), allowing only 15.9 points per contest. Over the last six games, the LSU defense allowed only 12 points in the second half on the way to a berth in the Capital One Bowl against Iowa – LSU’s fourth consecutive January bowl berth. That marked a first for the Tiger program.

Saban served as head coach at Michigan State from 199599, his second stint at the East Lansing school as he also spent 1983-87 as the Spartans’ defensive coordinator/ secondary coach. After playing in only one bowl game in the previous four years, Michigan State made four postseason appearances in Saban’s five years at the helm. Saban led MSU to a 34-24-1 (.585) record. In 1999, Saban led his final Spartans team to a No. 7 national ranking, finishing in a tie for second place in the Big Ten. The Spartans defeated Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State in the same year for the first time since 1965 and recorded six wins at home for the first time since the 1912 season. The Spartans’ performance that year landed them a spot in the Citrus Bowl. The Spartans led the Big Ten in rushing defense (77.0 ypg) and total defense (299.0 ypg) while ranking fifth nationally in rushing defense and 11th in total defense. The MSU offense averaged 31.0 points per game.

COACH SABAN

Saban was the first coach in school history to put the Spartans in postseason bowl games in each of his first three seasons – as he led the Spartans to the Independence Bowl in 1995, the Sun Bowl in 1996 and the Aloha Bowl in 1997.

COACHES AND STAFF At Michigan State, the Sabans started the Nick’s Kids Fund, which they have continued in Tuscaloosa, a vibrant example of their continuing concern for disadvantaged children. Since Nick and Terry arrived in Tuscaloosa, more than $2.5 million has been distributed to more than 150 charities through the Nick’s Kids Fund. The Sabans also built 14 homes with Project Team Up and Habitat for Humanity following the April 27, 2011, tornado that stuck Tuscaloosa. In receiving the 2008 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award, Saban was awarded a $50,000 gift at the A-Day Game. He designated the gift for Nick’s Kids, as well as an additional $20,000 gift for the University of Alabama scholarship fund. In June of 2008, the Sabans announced a $1 million gift to benefit Alabama’s firstgeneration scholarship program. The gift has a special meaning to the Sabans as both Nick and Terry were first-generation graduates.

COACH SABAN

Before Michigan State, Saban spent four seasons (1991-94) as defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns under head coach Bill Belichick. The Browns went from allowing the most points (462) in the NFL prior to Saban’s arrival to allowing the fewest points (204) in the league in 1994, the sixth-fewest points surrendered in NFL history at the time. In each of Saban’s four years guiding the Browns defense, they never permitted an average of more than 19.2 points per game. He built a reputation as one of the finest defensive coaches in the league and also was heavily involved in the team’s player personnel and scouting process. Saban’s first head coaching position came at the University of Toledo in 1990, as he guided the Rockets to a record of 9-2 that year, finishing as co-champions of the MidAmerican Conference. The Rockets ranked among the NCAA leaders in both total defense (12th at 284.8 yards) and scoring defense (16th at 16.2 points), and missed posting an undefeated record by a mere five points. Saban joined Toledo after serving as secondary coach with the Houston Oilers for two seasons under Jerry Glanville (1988-89), his first NFL coaching position. He quickly made an impact on the Oilers defense, as the team’s secondary tied for fourth in the AFC in 1988 with 21 interceptions and then tied for second in the conference in 1989 with 22.

The Sabans also have played a big role in tornado relief efforts in Tuscaloosa and the surrounding areas. Immediately following the devastating storm, Nick and Terry visited shelters, where they paid for and served meals to those in need. Through Nick’s Kids, the Sabans have joined with Project Team Up in helping to rebuild homes lost in the tornado.

In his first stint at Michigan State, Saban served as secondary coach and defensive coordinator under George Perles from 1983-87. Saban played an integral part in helping the Spartans make three postseason bowl appearances, including a Big Ten championship in 1987 and a 20-17 victory over Southern California in the 1988 Rose Bowl. Michigan State led the nation in rushing defense in 1987, allowing only 61.2 yards per game, and ranked second in scoring defense, permitting only 12.4 points per game. A native of Fairmont, W.Va., Saban is a 1973 graduate of Kent State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business. He earned a master’s degree in sports administration from Kent State in 1975. Born Oct. 31, 1951, Saban and his wife, the former Terry Constable, have two children, Nicholas and Kristen.

Saban co-authored Tiger Turnaround in 2001, a book documenting his first two years as head coach at LSU, and coauthored How Good Do You Want to Be? in 2005, a book that offers real-life principles for success at work and at home. In addition to their work as fundraisers for LSU’s StudentAthlete Academic Center, the Sabans supported several charitable and civic projects in Louisiana. The largest of those efforts was with the Children’s Miracle Network, for which Terry and Nick raised more than $100,000 per year.

COACHING STAFF

Brown spent the 2011 and 2012 seasons as the defensive coordinator at the University of Colorado, his thirdcoaching stint with the Buffalos. He led a young and inexperienced CU defense that showed improvement during his tenure, but was plagued with injuries that forced him to play converted receivers and walk-ons. He spent the 2010 season as the co-defensive coordinator at the University of Arizona, helping return the Wildcats to the nation’s Top 25 for the first time in over a decade. Brown returned to CU in January 2006, named to the staff of Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins following the completion of the 2005 National Football League season. From 2006-09 Brown served as Colorado’s secondary coach and the last three as defensive passinggame coordinator. In his four seasons during his second stint at Colorado, he helped tutor Terrence Wheatley, coaching him to firstteam All-Big 12 honors and a second round NFL draft pick by the New England Patriots. He also tutored a pair of young cornerbacks in Jimmy Smith and Jalil Brown, the former a two-time All-Big 12 performer. In 2005, he wrapped up his fourth and final year as a defensive assistant with the NFL’s New Orleans Saints under coach Jim Haslett. In that 2005 season, the Saints’ pass defense ranked third in the entire NFL, allowing a paltry 178 yards per game.

Seventh Year

Burton BURNS Nebraska, 1976 Burton Burns is in his seventh season with the Alabama Crimson Tide football program in 2012 as associate head coach and running backs coach. The New Orleans native is regarded as one of the best coaches in college football and was named the Football Scoop Running Backs Coach of the Year following the 2008 season. Over 15 seasons as a college assistant coach, Burns has produced versatile running backs that have been effective in every phase of the game. His players have proven to be equally effective on the ground and in the passing game. Few in college football can say they have coached a Heisman Trophy finalist, but Burns can claim a pair dating back to the 2009 season, including the 2009 recipient Mark Ingram and 2011 finalist Trent Richardson. Burns turned in another masterful coaching job in 2012. As injuries hammered away at the Tide’s depth at running back, junior Eddie Lacy and true freshman T.J. Yeldon stepped to the forefront and combined to rush for 2,430 yards and 29 rushing touchdowns (32 total touchdowns). The pair became the first Alabama running backs to rush for more than 1,000 yards in the same season. UA ranked 16th nationally in rushing and second in the SEC with an average of 227.5 yards per game. Under Burns, the 2011 Crimson Tide rushing offense ranked 16th in the nation, and first in the Southeastern Conference, collecting 214.5 yards per game. In addition to being a Heisman Trophy finalist, Richardson became the first Alabama player to win the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top running back. He was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year, ranking fifth in the nation and first in the league with 129.2 yards on the ground per game. He collected 21 rushing touchdowns, setting the school record and tying him for second in SEC history. He equaled the school and SEC record with 24 total touchdowns. Lacy, finished the 2011 season ninth in the SEC with 56.2 rushing yards per game and seven TDs. In 2010, Alabama’s ground game accumulated 2,378 yards to rank 29th in the country. Playing in only 11 games each, Ingram led the way with 875 yards and 13 scores followed by Richardson’s 700 yards with six touchdowns. With two scores against Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl, Ingram set the Alabama career rushing touchdown record at 42. He finished his career fourth on the career rushing yardage list with 3,261 yards in three seasons. Both Ingram and Richardson were

yards on 203 carries and scored 17 touchdowns, while Spiller had 938 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. The Tigers averaged 5.7 yards per carry during the 2006 regular season.

Under Burns’ guidance in 2009, Ingram was awarded Alabama’s first Heisman Trophy and earned unanimous All-America honors. Ingram set the school’s single-season rushing record with 1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns while adding 32 receptions for 334 yards and three scores. Richardson, a true freshman, was the team’s second-leading rusher (642 yards, 6 TD) and was a Freshman All-SEC selection. In the BCS Championship Game against Texas, Ingram and Richardson both rushed for 100-plus yards to help lead Alabama to the school’s 13th title.

Burns spent eight seasons with head coach Tommy Bowden at Clemson, after a four-year stint at Tulane that concluded with a 12-0 season in 1998.

Roy Upchurch added valuable production in 2009, especially on third downs. He earned an invite to the prestigious Senior Bowl at the conclusion of the season. Burns also developed one of the nation’s strongest running games in 2008 as Alabama finished third in the SEC and 30th nationally with an average of 184.6 rushing yards per game. Glen Coffee, a first-team AllSEC selection and third-round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers, led the way with 1,383 yards on the ground. That single-season total then tied for second in school history and was third in the conference. Ingram was eighth in the SEC in rushing (728 yards), captured Freshman All-SEC honors and set a Tide rookie record with 12 rushing scores.

Associate Head Coach/RB

Burns spent nine seasons as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at Saint Augustine High School in New Orleans before joining Bowden’s staff at Tulane. Burns helped lead Saint Augustine to district titles in 1987, 1992 and 1993, his second stint at the school. His first experience as a coach also was at Saint Augustine, where he served as an assistant from 1977-79 and helped the school win three other district championships on the way to consecutive state titles in 1978-79. Burns also coached at New Orleans’ Booker T. Washington High School in 1980 before a five-year stint as an assistant coach at Southern University in Baton Rouge from 1981-85. As a player, Burns played fullback (1971-75) at the University of Nebraska under head coach Tom Osborne. A member of three Cornhusker teams that won at least nine games, Burns participated in the Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl and Sugar Bowl. He earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Nebraska in 1976. Burns is married to the former Connie Winder. The couple has three daughters, Amber, Christy and Erin, and a son, Damon. They have one granddaughter, Mackenzie, and a son-in-law Sylvester Anderson.

In his first year at Alabama (2007), Burns helped firstyear tailback Terry Grant set school records for rushing yards (891) and touchdowns (8) by a freshman. Grant was a three-time SEC Freshman of the Week honoree and was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team as well as Sporting News Freshman All-American team (honorable mention). An assistant coach at Clemson University for eight seasons before coming to Alabama, Burns was a major factor in producing six of the top 10 offenses in Clemson history as running backs coach for the Tigers. Burns tutored star runners such as 2005 ACC Rookie of the Year James Davis, 2006 freshman record-setter C.J.

He had been the head coach at Florida International University for the past six years before joining Alabama after a brief stay at his alma mater, Miami, earlier this year.

COACHING STAFF

During his six years at the helm of the FIU program, Cristobal was regarded as one of the country’s top college football coaches and is the architect of a successful program that had been to back-to-back bowl games in 2010 and 2011. The 2011 season was the most successful years in program history with the school capturing a program-record eight victories during the regular season, along with milestone wins on the road at eventual Co-BIG EAST Champion Louisville and at home against Conference USA power Central Florida. FIU began its historic run during the 2010 season, when Cristobal led FIU to its first Sun Belt Conference championship and bowl victory over MAC champion Toledo. For his efforts, he was named the Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year. He was named the second head football coach in FIU history on December 19, 2006, Cristobal implemented his philosophy of hard work and dedication, which has paid quick dividends both on the field and in the classroom. During his time at FIU, Cristobal also proved to be an effective recruiter, with consecutive recruiting classes in 2011 and 2012 that were regarded among the best in the Sun Belt Conference. Prior to accepting the head coaching job at FIU, Cristobal coached at the University of Miami for three years under former head coach Larry Coker. The Hurricanes compiled a 24-12 record in that time with appearances in the 2004 and 2005 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowls and the 2006 Micron PC Bowl. Cristobal coached Miami’s tight ends in the 2004 and 2005 seasons, tutoring 2005 Buffalo Bills’ third-round pick Kevin Everett, 2006 free-agent signee Buck Ortega and 2007 Chicago Bears’ first-round selection Greg Olsen.

Cristobal and his wife Jessica were married in June of 2006 and have two sons (Mario, Jr. and Rocco).

While coaching at Rutgers from 2001-03 Cristobal helped set the table for one of the biggest success stories in the last 30 years of college football. Cristobal worked under head coach Greg Schiano, coaching the offensive tackles and tight ends for two seasons before shifting his focus solely to the offensive line in 2003. Cristobal was a critical factor in Rutgers’ resurgence to competitiveness and helped lay the foundation in recruiting and coaching for a program that went from obscurity to college football’s upper echelon in a matter of five years. During Cristobal’s tenure at Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights improved from records of 2-9 and 1-11 to a 5-7 mark in 2003, the school’s best record since 1998. One of Cristobal’s brightest pupils was tight end L.J. Smith, the Philadelphia Eagles’ second-round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft and current starter. Cristobal began his coaching career in 1998, when he joined the Miami Hurricanes staff as a graduate assistant, working with the Hurricanes for three seasons (19982000) under head coach Butch Davis. He helped his alma mater to a 29-8 record, three bowl wins and a pair of BIG EAST Conference championships in that time. Cristobal was a four-year letterwinner for the University of Miami from 1988-92, playing for Hall of Fame coach Jimmy Johnson and Dennis Erickson. During his four years at UM, the Hurricanes won a pair of National Championships (1989 and 1991) while playing in two Sugar Bowls, one Cotton Bowl and an Orange Bowl. Cristobal was a first team All-Big East selection as an offensive tackle in 1992. Following his college playing career, Cristobal signed a free agent contract with the Denver Broncos in 1994. He played for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe in 1995 and 1996.

In 2006, Cristobal took over a Miami offensive line that featured four new starters, including a true sophomore at left tackle and a true freshman at right tackle.

Napier joined the Crimson Tide staff after serving as the assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach at Colorado State in 2012 for former Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain. Napier returned to the Capstone in March to replace Mike Groh, who took an assistant coaching job with the Chicago Bears. Injuries forced Napier to go deep down the bench looking for quarterbacks during his one season in Fort Collins. The Rams saw three quarterbacks play significant snaps as the starter with Garrett Grayson going down early in the season, M.J. McPeek following two weeks later forcing redshirt freshman Conner Smith into action. The trio combined to throw for 2,520 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2012 as Colorado State won three of their final five games. Napier spent the 2011 season on the Alabama staff as an offensive analyst, helping the Crimson Tide to the 2011 BCS National Championship. The Tide ranked 16th in scoring offense, 30th in total offense and 17th in rushing offense in 2011. Prior to Alabama, Napier spent seven of the last eight years at Clemson. During Napier’s final two seasons at Clemson, he earned an elevated position as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. At the age of 29, he became the youngest coordinator in Clemson history. In his first season as Clemson’s coordinator in 2009, the Tigers scored a school-record 436 points. Additionally, Clemson scored 54 touchdowns (third-most in school history), averaged 5.73 yards per play (fourth-best) and finished the year as the ACC Atlantic Division champions. Quarterback Kyle Parker was named a Freshman All-American, and nine players Napier coached from 2009-10 went on to careers in the NFL. From 2006-08, the assistant coach split his time as the team’s recruiting coordinator. In those three seasons, he compiled two top-25 recruiting classes, according to Rivals.com, and in 2008, his class was tabbed as the second-best in the nation by ESPN.com. Known to his peers as a top recruiter, Napier has signed several players that went on to the NFL, including Kavell Conner, Crezdon Butler, Brandon Thompson and Marcus Gilchrist. Fourteen players from Clemson’s 2011 twodeep were signed by Napier, including five who earned all-ACC honors.

In his first year back with Clemson, 2006, Napier worked primarily with the Tigers’ tight ends, but was also responsible for the punt team, and assisted in several special-teams capacities. The Tigers led the ACC in total offense, rushing and scoring offense in 2006, advancing to the Music City Bowl. Clemson averaged 410.9 yards per game, in addition to 32.7 points, more than doubling its opponents totals. Tight end Hunter Thomas started all 11 games for the Tigers, averaging 19.1 yards per reception, and Michael Palmer, who Napier coached for three seasons, went on to the NFL. Also working with the special teams, he helped to develop one of the most talented players in Clemson history, C.J. Spiller.

The Bulldogs finished the year 9-2, and ranked among the nation’s best in several offensive categories, including: rushing (12th), passing efficiency (15th) and scoring offense (17th). S.C. State also had the country’s fourth-best turnover margin, committing just 11 turnovers, roughly one-third of the total from the previous season (32). Napier developed Cleve McCoy, S.C. State’s first-year quarterback, and molded him into the MEAC Player of the Year. He also recruited OT Johnny Culbreath, who became a unanimous All-America selection, and was drafted by the Detroit Lions. Napier was offered the position of offensive coordinator after the 2005 season, but declined, instead taking over as the tight ends coach at Clemson. Napier began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Clemson, from 2003-04. In 2003, the new coach worked with video coordinating. The Tigers won nine games, including the Peach Bowl against Tennessee. The following season, Napier was the on-field graduate assistant on defense, and off the field, got his first experience with recruiting. As a player, Napier was a four-year letterwinner and two-time All-Southern Conference selection as the starting quarterback at Furman. The Paladins won two conference championships and in 2001, Napier’s junior year, advanced to the Division I-AA national championship, where they lost to Montana, 13-6. He

Second Year

Doug NUSSMEIER Idaho, 1994 Doug Nussmeier begins his second season as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Alabama after joining the Crimson Tide in February 2012 after three seasons at the University of Washington.

COACHING STAFF

In this first year at the helm of the Alabama offense, the Crimson Tide produced one of the most proficient offensive seasons in school history. UA set records for rushing/passing touchdowns scored (68), total points (542), total offense (6,237) and passing touchdowns (31). His tutelage of quarterback AJ McCarron resulted in one of the best seasons by a quarterback in school history. McCarron set the record for single-season touchdowns (30), while throwing for 2,933 yards (second in school history) and completing 67.2 percent of his passes and throwing just three interceptions while leading the nation in passing efficiency (175.28). Nussmeier built a balanced offense that proved to be explosive at the same time. The Tide rushed for 3,185 yards while throwing for 3,052, becoming the first Alabama team to rush and pass for 3,000 yards in a single season while accounting for 134 plays of 15-yards or more (76 passing and 58 rushing). Despite replacing a first-round pick at quarterback, Nussmeier’s offense at Washington had a very successful campaign in 2011 and the unit improved statistically in each of his three seasons. Washington’s offense scored 57 touchdowns and 434 points in 2011, the secondhighest totals in school history (behind only the 1991 national championship team). The 2011 season marks for passing yards (3,322) and total offense (5,328) also were second in the UW record book. Nussmeier helped guide sophomore quarterback Keith Price to one of the top individual seasons at Washington. As the first-year starter, Price broke records for passing touchdowns (33), completion percentage (.669) and passing efficiency (161.9). That efficiency rating was seventh nationally and second in the Pac-12 behind only Andrew Luck of Stanford. The Huskies scored 30 or more points in nine of 13 games and also featured an outstanding ground game led by Chris Polk, who ranked 16th nationally with an average of 114.5 rushing yards per game. In 2010, Nussmeier oversaw a balanced attack that finished the season with 2,238 rushing yards and 2,475 passing yards. The offense was led by Polk, whose 1,415 rushing yards were second-most in UW single-season history. Nussmeier also mentored quarterback Jake Locker, who finished his career ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in nearly every major quarterbacking category. Locker was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the by Tennessee Titans.

The Huskies scored 26.1 points per game, nearly doubling their average from the previous year while total offense was up more than 110 yards per game over the 2008 average. Nussmeier also spent his first season coaching Locker, who had one of the most productive seasons in Huskies history. Locker passed for 2,800 yards, the thirdhighest total in school history, while the offense boasted a 1,000-yard rusher in Polk. Nussmeier came to the UW after one season as the offensive coordinator at Fresno State. He joined the Fresno State staff after spending two seasons as the quarterbacks coach for the St. Louis Rams on the staff of head coach Scott Linehan. Nussmeier coached Marc Bulger, who was named to his second Pro Bowl in 2006, finishing with 4,301 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. Before his time with the Rams, Nussmeier was the quarterbacks coach at Michigan State for three seasons. In 2005, MSU quarterback Drew Stanton passed for a school-record 3,415 yards, breaking a record set by another Nussmeier pupil, Jeff Smoker, who threw for 3,395 yards in 2003. Smoker also set MSU records for completions (302) and passing touchdowns (21).

Rumph, a four-year letterman during his playing days at South Carolina, joined Alabama’s staff in January of 2011 after five years as the defensive ends coach at Clemson. Rumph’s 2012 deep and talented defensive line was a key element in Alabama’s defensive efforts. The Crimson Tide led the nation in rush defense, allowing only 76.4 yards per game while also leading the country in total defense at 250.0 yards per game. Senior defensive end Damion Square, senior nose guard Jesse Williams and junior end Ed Stinson anchored the group. Square finished 33 tackles, four tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and a team-high nine quarterback hurries. Williams added 37 stops with 2.5 tackles for loss and four hurries, while Stinson registered three sacks, 8.5 tackles for loss and 30 total stops. The defensive line was stellar in 2011 helping the Crimson Tide rank No. 1 nationally in rushing defense, allowing just 72.2 yards per game. Josh Chapman anchored the 2011 line from his nose guard position, earning second-team All-SEC honors, despite playing the second half of the season with a torn ACL. In 2011, Chapman collected 23 total tackles, including 3.5 for loss, one sack and a pair of pass breakups. Alabama led the nation in all five major defensive categories as the Tide captured the national championship. He then was drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, by the Indianapolis Colts.

Kirby SMART Georgia, 1999 Kirby Smart, the 2012 AFCA Assistant Coach of the Year and the 2009 Broyles Award winner as college football’s top assistant coach, is in his seventh season with the Alabama football staff and sixth as defensive coordinator. A former standout defensive back and scholar-athlete at Georgia, Smart is regarded as one of the nation’s most well-respected defensive coordinators.

COACHING STAFF

Smart retooled the Alabama defense in 2012, molding a unit that lost six starters to the NFL after the 2011 season. The Tide led the nation in total defense (250.0 ypg), scoring defense (10.9 ppg) and rush defense (76.4 ypg) while ranking seventh in pass defense (174.3 ypg) and pass efficiency defense (103.72). The Alabama defense features two first-team All-Americans in cornerback Dee Milliner and linebacker C.J. Mosley. Milliner was a finalist for the Thorpe Award that goes to the nation’s top defensive back after making 54 tackles, with a nationleading 20 pass deflections, two interceptions and four tackles for loss. Mosley was a finalist for the Butkus Award and led the team with 107 tackles while making seven tackles for loss, four sacks and intercepting two passes. The 107 tackles for Mosley was the second most in the last 25 years by an Alabama defender (Demeco Ryans had 126 in 2003). The 2011 defense led the nation in all five major categories including total defense (183.6 ypg), scoring defense (8.2 ppg), rushing defense (72.2 ypg), passing defense (111.5 ypg) and pass efficiency defense (83.69 rating). Dont’a Hightower (a finalist for the Lombardi Award, Lott Trophy, Butkus Award and Bednarik Award) led the team in total tackles with 85. The first team allSEC selection has also recorded 11 tackles for loss, four sacks, eight quarterback hurries, one interception and a blocked kick. Hightower also became the latest in a line of first-round linebackers produced at Alabama, going to the New England Patriots with the 25th pick of the first round in 2012. Smart’s rebuilding job in 2010 was impressive as the Tide remained one of the nation’s elite defensive units while replacing nearly the entire defense (nine starters). Alabama led the SEC and ranked third nationally in scoring defense (13.5 ppg) and fifth nationally in total defense (286.4 ypg). UA also ranked first in the SEC (sixth in the NCAA) in pass efficiency defense.

A veteran coach with both college and NFL experience, Williams is a member of head coach Nick Saban’s coaching staff for the fourth time in his career, also working together at Michigan State, LSU and the Miami Dolphins.

COACHING STAFF

Williams was a nominee for the 2012 Frank Broyles Award, which goes to the national assistant coach of the year. Alabama’s tight ends combination of threeyear starter Michael Williams and walk-on senior Kelly Johnson performed well with 29 receptions for 222 yards and four scores. Place-kicker Jeremy Shelley was the only kicker in the nation to not miss a kick, going 69-for-69 on extra points and hitting all 11 of his field goals. Punter Cody Mandell turned in a career season with a 44.3 yards per kick average with 19 punts inside the 20-yard line and 14 punts of more than 50 yards. In 2011, Williams’ tight end duo of Brad Smelley and Williams combined for 50 receptions resulting in 547 yards for the Crimson Tide. Smelley recorded a teambest four receiving touchdowns, while Williams tacked on another two scores in 2011. On special teams, Marquis Maze ranked ninth in the nation and third in the Southeastern Conference, averaging 13.2 yards per punt return with one touchdown. Those numbers earned Maze a spot on the all-SEC second team as a specialist. Alabama ranked 19th in the nation in kickoff returns (24.1 ypg). The Tide allowed only 11 punts to be returned in 2011, for a total of 51 yards. Williams was instrumental in the development of Preston Dial in 2010, as the senior had a breakout season under his tutelage. On top of his exceptional blocking abilities, Dial hauled in a career-best 25 passes for 264 yards and three scores. Williams also had an outstanding season as a dominating blocker on the edge in the Alabama running game while catching eight passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. The veteran coach had to replace both kickers in 2010 with the losses of Leigh Tiffin and P.J. Fitzgerald. Mandell won the punting duties as a true freshman and averaged 39.2 yards per kick, knocking 13 inside the 20. Fellow freshman Cade Foster split field goal duties with sophomore Shelley. Foster drilled seven field goals, including five over 40 yards while Shelley handled the closer attempts. Trent Richardson ranked 29th nationally in kickoff returns and Maze was 16th in punt returns.

During the national championship season in 2009, Williams had to replace a pair of senior tight ends from the 2008 roster. The Alabama offense did not miss a beat as Colin Peek emerged as one of the team’s top targets, earning second team Associated Press all-SEC honors with 26 catches for 313 yards and three touchdowns.

He previously was an assistant on the Spartans staff from 1990-99, during which time he tutored the running backs under Saban. Spartan backs produced nine individual 1,000-yard rushing seasons in Williams’ 10 years in that post, including T.J. Duckett, Atlanta’s firstround draft choice in 2002.

Williams also oversaw 2009 Lou Groza finalist Leigh Tiffin at place-kicker. Tiffin earned first team AP AllAmerica status. Javier Arenas set the SEC career records for punt return yards and touchdowns. Punter P.J. Fitzgerald had a career season for the Tide in 2009 by averaging 41.5 yards per kick, with 19 inside the 20-yard line.

Williams earned his start in coaching as running backs/ defensive backs coach at Ball State from 1983-84. He followed that with a five-year stint(1985-89) as offensive backfield coach at Eastern Michigan.

The special teams in 2008 were a big weapon for the Tide under Williams. Arenas broke two punt returns for touchdowns, Tiffin was a Groza Award semifinalist and connected on 20-of-29 on field goals while Fitzgerald had a then-career-best average of 41.1 yards per punt with 15 inside the 20. Tight ends Nick Walker and Travis McCall combined for 23 starts, the best seasons of their career in terms of production.

Williams is a 1982 graduate of Purdue, where he earned his degree in general management and was a four-year letterman for the Boilermakers. He started his career at running back before moving to the secondary and starting in his final three seasons. A tri-captain as a senior in 1981, Williams was a part of three bowl teams as a player. He then served one year (1982) as a graduate assistant at his alma mater. A native of St. Louis, Williams and his wife Sheila have a daughter Nataly and a son Nicholas, a former wide receiver for the Crimson Tide.

Williams spent the 2005 and 2006 seasons as the running backs coach with the Dolphins. In his first season, Miami averaged 118.6 yards rushing per game, the second-best figure by the team from 1985-2005. In 2004, Williams served as the associate head coach/ wide receivers coach at LSU, where he coached a pair of future NFL first-round picks in Craig Davis and Dwayne Bowe. Davis and Bowe ranked in the top 10 in the SEC for both receptions per game and receiving yards per game in 2004. Prior to LSU, Williams had a one-year stint with the Detroit Lions as wide receivers coach in 2003. Williams followed Saban as the head coach at Michigan State and served in that post from 2000-02. He led the Spartans to a victory over Florida in the 2000 Citrus Bowl after the 1999 season, in his first game as the school’s head coach. He also guided Michigan State to a 7-5 mark in 2001, his second full season as head coach. That season culminated with a victory over Fresno State in the Silicon Valley Football Classic, as he became the first coach in Michigan State history to lead his team to victories in his first two bowl appearances.

Scott COCHRAN LSU, 2001 The booming voice you hear leading a pre-practice stretch or encouraging a Crimson Tide player to finish a workout session strong is that of Director of Strength and Conditioning Scott Cochran. The highenergy coach, who is a two-time national strength coach of the year, joined the Alabama staff in 2007 after spending three seasons with the New Orleans Hornets of the NBA as an assistant strength coach. Cochran has been on Nick Saban’s staff for all four national titles, as he served as an assistant at LSU in 2003. Cochran is nationally regarded as one of the best in the area of strength and conditioning – and the performances of Alabama’s players on the field prove that to be true. He received one of the highest honors in his field when he was named the 2011 Samson Strength & Conditioning Coach of the Year as featured in American Football Quarterly. He earlier was named the Samson Strength & Conditioning Coach of the Year following the 2008 season. Prior to the start of spring drills, Cochran implements coach Nick Saban’s offseason workout plan, which includes the well-known “Fourth Quarter Program” – a very important step in helping UA players develop physically and prepare for the upcoming practices. It is no coincidence that through improvements off the field in strength and conditioning, Alabama is known as one of the most physically dominant teams in the country. The main goal of the program is to win the fourth quarter and wear down the opponent as the game goes on. On the way to the 2009 national championship, Alabama did just that as they won the fourth quarter by an astounding scoring margin of 121-32. The Tide continued the trend of finishing in 2011, as it again dominated the fourth quarter en route to UA’s second national championship in three years with a 111-18 fourth-quarter scoring margin.

ARLINGTON, Texas — An explosive Crimson Tide offense that showed balance between its rushing and passing games, along with a tough defense that also showed an opportunistic side, decided the outcome early as the No. 2 ranked Alabama football team raced out to a 31-0 lead in the second quarter on the way to a decisive 41-14 victory over No. 8 Michigan Saturday night in the Cowboys Classic at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The Alabama defense forced four turnovers, including two that led to ensuing touchdowns, as the top-ranked Crimson Tide (2-0) cruised to a 35-0 victory over Western Kentucky (1-1) Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Alabama’s offense overcame a Hilltoppers defense that was stacked to stifle the Crimson Tide rushing game as quarterback AJ McCarron threw four touchdown passes in an efficient performance.

AJ McCarron passed for 199 yards and two touchdowns, freshman running back T.J. Yeldon rushed for 111 yards and linebacker C.J. Mosley returned an interception for a score as Alabama dominated the Wolverines and put the game away early. Yeldon became the first true freshman running back in Alabama history to start his career by eclipsing 100 yards rushing.

Two of Alabama’s scoring drives needed to cover just 33 and 12 yards after the Tide defense forced WKU turnovers. While Western Kentucky limited the Alabama offense to 103 rushing yards, the Crimson Tide defense produced another dominant performance by holding the explosive Hilltoppers to 224 total yards while garnering Alabama’s fourth shutout over the last two seasons. McCarron passed for 219 yards to lead the Tide offense, completing 14 of 19 passes, including three for 92 yards to Kevin Norwood.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The top-ranked Crimson Tide (3-0 overall; 1-0 in the Southeastern Conference) was physically dominant on the line of scrimmage both offensively and defensively, and took advantage of five Arkansas turnovers in a 52-0 rout of the Razorbacks (1-2 overall; 0-1 in the SEC) on Saturday afternoon before a crowd of 74,617 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (4-0 overall; 1-0 in the Southeastern Conference) scored on their first six possessions of the game while racing to a 30-0 halftime lead on the way to a 40-7 defeat of Florida Atlantic (1-3) on Saturday afternoon before a crowd of 101,821 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The margin of victory represents the largest Alabama victory margin in an SEC game since a 55-0 win over Auburn in 1948 and is the fourth-largest margin in an SEC game ranking behind a 65-0 win over Sewanee in 1937, a 66-3 win at Vanderbilt in 1979, and the 55-0 win vs. Auburn in 1948. In addition, the shutout marked the first time Arkansas has failed to score in Fayetteville since 1966. Alabama had four scoring drives of 30 yards or less, including two of less than 10 yards, as the Tide's defense and special teams forced turnovers leading to scores. AJ McCarron completed 11 of 16 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown, while receiver Christion Jones caught three passes for 73 yards and running back Eddie Lacy had 55 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Alabama offense. Safety HaHa Clinton-Dix set up one score by returning an interception 46 yards to the Arkansas 3-yard line, Vinnie Sunseri ended an Arkansas threat with an interception. Alabama limited the injury-plagued Razorbacks offense to 137 total yards on the day. 1 7 0

Saturday, Oct. 20 • Neyland Stadium • Knoxville, Tenn. Attendance: 102,455 • TV: ESPN KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron passed for a career-high 306 yards and four touchdowns, connecting with freshman wide receiver Amari Cooper seven times for 162 yards and two scores as the top-ranked Crimson Tide (7-0 overall; 4-0 in the Southeastern Conference) dominated Tennessee (3-4 overall; 0-4 SEC) in a 44-13 victory before a capacity crowd of 102,455 at Neyland Stadium on Saturday night. Freshman running back T.J. Yeldon rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Alabama ground game. The latest renewal of the storied "Third Saturday in October" rivalry was marked by an explosive night by the Alabama offense, which rolled to 539 yards of total offense behind a potent passing game. The Alabama defense bottled up what had been an exciting Tennessee offense, limiting the Volunteers to 282 total yards on the night while forcing two turnovers. Alabama repelled Tennessee drives inside Crimson Tide territory several times, including a fourth-down stop at the Tide 33 and an interception by safety Robert Lester in the end zone that snuffed another Volunteers' threat. Cooper had six catches for 120 yards and a touchdown in the first half alone as the Tide raced to a 23-10 lead at intermission before putting away the game in the second half. The victory was Alabama's sixth straight in the series. McCarron enjoyed an efficient night passing as he completed 17 of 22 attempts just one week after suffering a minor knee injury in the second half against Missouri. 1 7 3

BATON ROUGE, La. — Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon took a swing pass from quarterback AJ McCarron and raced 28 yards for a touchdown with 51 seconds left in the game to cap a frantic 72-yard drive in five plays to give top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide to a stunning 21-17 victory over 5th-ranked LSU on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel passed for 253 yards and accounted for 345 yards of total offense to lead the 15th-ranked Aggies (8-2 overall; 5-2 in the Southeastern Conference) to a 29-24 upset of top-ranked Alabama (9-1 overall; 6-1 in the SEC) on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

After a missed LSU field goal attempt with 1:34 remaining in the game, Alabama took over at its own 28-yard line facing a 17-14 deficit. McCarron smoothly led the Crimson Tide downfield for the go-ahead score, hitting passes on three successive plays to start the drive: an 18-yard pass to receiver Kevin Norwood to the Alabama 46, a 15-yarder to Norwood to the LSU 39, and an 11-yarder to Norwood to the LSU 28. After the next play was an incompletion, McCarron found Yeldon alone in the left flat and he did the rest, eluding two would-be tacklers behind good blocking to complete the drive.

Manziel led the Aggies to a shocking 20-0 first quarter lead by leading the Aggies to touchdowns on their first three offensive possessions of the game before the Crimson Tide could being to rally. Put in the position of having virtually no margin for error, the Alabama offense could not overcome the deficit despite the Tide defense righting its ship for most of the next three quarters. Even though Alabama outgained A&M 431 to 418, three turnovers proved fatal to the Crimson Tide comeback. Two turnovers in A&M territory, a fumble at the Aggie 34 and an interception on the goal line, ended potential Alabama scoring drives in the fourth quarter.

Prior to that march by Alabama, this classic had all the makings of a stunning upset as LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger passed for 296 yards, including 206 in the second half, to lead the Tigers to a 17-14 lead in the final stages of the game. Mettenberger and the LSU offense consistently made big plays, particularly in third down situations, while the Alabama defense was surprisingly vulnerable in the second half. LSU's offense mounted scoring drives of 58 and 90 yards on consecutive possessions in the second half, played turnover-free football and unveiled an explosive passing game in the second half.

The outcome dealt a serious blow to Alabama's national title hopes, but the Crimson Tide remains in the driver's seat for an SEC West Division title. The Tide entered the game two games up on all other teams in the division, and remains one game up in the standings needing a win over Auburn on November 24 to clinch a spot in the SEC Championship Game on December 1. A&M is the only team that can win a divisional tie-breaker with Alabama due to the win over the Tide, but needs an Alabama loss to Auburn to get that berth.

LSU lost despite converting 10 of 20 third downs into first downs while Alabama went 1-for-9 on the night in third down conversions. The Tide overcame a minus-two turnover margin, gave up multiple plays of more than 20 and 30 yards and allowed the most total yards (435) to an opponent since LSU gained 433 in 2010, a 24-21 Crimson Tide loss. 1 0 3

Saturday, Nov. 17 • Bryant-Denny Stadium • Tuscaloosa, Ala. Attendance: 101,126 • TV: SEC Network TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Running back Eddie Lacy rushed for three first-half touchdowns while gaining 99 yards on 10 carries as fourth-ranked Alabama (10-1 overall; 6-1 in the Southeastern Conference) made quick work of Western Carolina (1-10; 0-8 in the Southern Conference) in a 49-0 shutout of the Catamounts before a crowd of 101,126 on a sunny Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Alabama defense held WCU to 163 total yards while earning its third shutout of the season. Meanwhile, the Tide offense amassed 460 total yards while rushing for an even 300 yards and passing for 160. The Tide converted six of nine third-down plays into first downs and averaged 8.8 yards per play on the afternoon. Carolina was limited to 70 rushing yards and only eight first downs. Alabama's early dominance gave the Crimson Tide a chance to rest its starters for much of the game to set up a crucial season-ending home game with arch-rival Auburn with the Southeastern Conference Western Division title on the line. The Crimson Tide wasted little time, scoring on their first three possessions to create an opportunity for their starters to rest with the annual clash with Auburn awaiting one week away. Alabama scored on every offensive possession of the first half and began resting starters in the second quarter as the game was quickly out of reach. Alabama scored on drives of 62, 44 and 62 yards on successive drives in the first period to gain a 21-0 lead in the game's first 10:50, then continued building on that lead through the remainder of the first half. The Crimson Tide amassed a 338-40 edge in total offense during the first half, including a 16-2 margin in first downs and a 192-15 margin in rushing yardage while scoring on all five of its first half possessions.

ATLANTA, Ga. — Two of college football's most storied programs put on a classic battle in the Georgia Dome in a rollicking showcase of national importance that pushed both teams to their limits, but second-ranked Alabama (12-1 overall) had just enough to outlast third-ranked Georgia (11-2 overall), beating the Bulldogs, 32-28, to win the 2012 Southeastern Conference Championship before a crowd of 75,624 Saturday evening.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Alabama Crimson Tide football team established its dominance early on the way to a dominant performance as the Tide earned the programs 15th national championship in football with a 42-14 victory over Notre Dame in the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game on Monday night.

Now the Crimson Tide awaits Sunday evening's Bowl Championship Series announcements, anticipating a berth in the National Championship Game against undefeated Notre Dame (12-0 overall). The BCS National Championship Game is scheduled for Monday, January 7, at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Fla.

Playing before a Sun Life Stadium record crowd of 80,120 the Tide raced to touchdowns on their first three offensive possessions and built a lead that eventually reached 35-0 in the third quarter. The title, Alabama's third in the past four seasons, concluded a 13-1 season for the Tide while Notre Dame fell to 12-1 with the loss. Tide quarterback AJ McCarron passed for four touchdowns and 264 yards while completing 20 of 28 attempts without throwing an interception.

Alabama running back Eddie Lacy rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries to earn Most Outstanding Player honors as the Tide amassed 512 total yards, with Lacy and freshman T.J. Yeldon (153 yards on 25 yards) both eclipsing the century mark on the ground. Wideout Amari Cooper caught seven passes for 127 yards and a touchdown and quarterback AJ McCarron passed for 162 yards and a score while completing 13 of 21 passes with one interception.

Running back Eddie Lacy rushed for 140 yards and a touchdown while averaging seven yards per carry, wide receiver Amari Cooper caught six passes for 105 yards and two scores, and running back T.J. Yeldon rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown as the Tide offense flourished behind an outstanding performance by its offensive line.

With the win, Alabama's 2012 senior class won a school record 49 games over the past four seasons while losing only five contests. The 48 wins is tied for the second most in college football history and ranks among the best four-year totals in Southeastern Conference history (Florida won 48 games from 2006-09 and Alabama won 48 from 2008-11). Nebraska holds the record for senior class wins among BCS schools, with the 1997 Cornhuskers class posting a 49-2 record and three national championships. Earlier senior classes from Oklahoma (2003), Southern California (2005 & 2006), Florida (2009) and Alabama (2011) all have accumulated 48 wins.
