Since the team's founding in 1892, Alabama has played in over 1,100 sanctioned football games.
The Crimson Tide attempt a two-point conversion against Vanderbilt in 2007.

The Alabama Crimson Tide college football team competes as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, representing the University of Alabama in the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Alabama has played their home games at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama since 1929.[1]

The Crimson Tide claims thirteen national championships;[2] recorded 26 total conference championships; holds NCAA records with 57 post-season bowl game appearances[3] and 32 bowl game victories;[3] and nine undefeated, untied seasons.[4] Alabama leads the SEC West Division with seven appearances in the SEC Championship Game, and has a winning record against every SEC team.[5] The Associated Press (AP) ranks Alabama fifth in all-time Final AP Poll appearances.[6] With 813 wins in over 114 seasons of football, Alabama ranks sixth all-time in win-loss records in the NCAA.[7]

Football was introduced to the university by W.G. Little in 1892. The first win in the history of the program came in its inaugural game, a 56–0 shutout over Birmingham High School on November 11, 1892.[8] From 1892 to 1894, Alabama competed as a football independent, before joining the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) as a charter member in 1895. From 1895 to 1921, the Tide saw success in only having three losing seasons as a member of the SIAA. By 1922, Alabama left the SIAA to become a charter member of the Southern Conference.[8] As a member of the Southern Conference, Alabama won conference championships in 1924, 1925, 1926 and 1930. Additionally, Alabama won their first three National Championships in the 1925, 1926 and 1930 seasons.[9]

By 1933, Alabama again switched conferences, joining the SEC as a charter member. Alabama won the first SEC title in 1933 and its fourth and fifth national championship in the 1934 and 1941 seasons.[9] After winning five national championships and nine conference championships through 1946, Alabama saw a decline between 1946 and 1957 in capturing only a single conference title. After only winning four games over a period of three seasons, Bear Bryant was hired as head coach in 1958. Under his guidance Alabama won thirteen SEC championships and national championships in the 1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978 and 1979 seasons.[9] Following the retirement of Bryant in 1982, Alabama has had eight head coaches and won five SEC championships as well as the programs twelfth national championship in the 1992 season and their thirteenth overall and first BCS Championship in the 2009 season after defeating the Texas Longhorns in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. Through the 2009 season, Alabama has compiled an overall record of 813 wins, 316 losses, 43 ties and has appeared in 57 bowl games, with the most recent coming in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game.[9]
