Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Alabama football teams were not referred to as the "Crimson Tide" until the 1907 season. Prior to 1907, the team was called the "Crimson White" from 1893 to 1906 and the "Cadets" in 1892.[1][2]
  2. ^ Alabama led 10–5 in the second half when the Aggie squad left the field and forfeited the contest after a disputed call on the field.[4]
