4 Playoff Wins

Since its inception, Alabama Football made the College Football Playoff every year until this season. Since 2014, the Tide has racked up four playoff wins in the semifinals beating Michigan State, Washington, Clemson, and Oklahoma with a combined score of 131-47.

3 Butkus Awards

Over the last decade, Crimson Tide players have won three Butkus Awards recognizing the top linebacker in the country each season. Reuben Foster, C.J. Mosley, and Rolando McClain brought the award back to Title Town in 2016, 2013, and 2009 respectively.

2 Heisman Trophies

Alabama Football has had only two players in history win the Heisman Trophy- both of whom did so in the last decade. Mark Ingram in 2009 and Derrick Henry in 2015 earned the prestigious award. Both running backs had tremendous collegiate careers and are continuing to succeed at the next level, Ingram with the Ravens and Henry with the Titans.
