14. 2022 (11-2) Sugar Bowl win

In 2022, Alabama tied its lowest regular season win total under Saban, excluding his first year in 2007. The tied needed a Sugar Bowl win against an overmatched Kansas State team to get to 11 wins. 

The most memorable loss came against Tennessee when Hendon Hooker led the Volunteers to a 52-49 win in Knoxville. The 2022 Bama defense on gave up 18.2 points per game, which was ninth best, but allowed 26.7 points a game to ranked opponents.
