The 1913 Alabama Crimson Tide football team (variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama") represented the University of Alabama in the 1913 college football season. It was the Crimson Tide's 21st overall and 18th season as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). The team was led by head coach D. V. Graves, in his third year, and played their home games at the University of Alabama Quad in Tuscaloosa and at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Alabama. They finished the season with a record of six wins and three losses (6–3 overall, 4–3 in the SIAA).

Game notes[edit]

Alabama opened the season with three consecutive, shutout victories over Howard (now Samford University), Birmingham College (now Birmingham–Southern College) and Clemson. The 81 points against Birmingham set a new school record. Bama lost their first game of the season against Georgia.[1] After a pair of road victories against Tulane and Mississippi College, Alabama finished their season with a win against Tennessee and losses against Sewanee and Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State University).[1]
