Alabama football has been one of the most dominant programs throughout all of college athletics in the new millennium. As a result, Alabama always has a target on their backs. Each week, the Crimson Tide gets an opponent’s best, as they hope to earn a statement victory over Nick Saban and Co.

The Alabama revenge tour has been in full effect for the last 11 years.
