Alabama finished the season No. 1 in the AP Top 25 for the 12th time, extending its record by completing the program’s first perfect season since 2009. Here are the highlights:
- The Crimson Tide were a unanimous No. 1 in the final poll, getting 61 first-place votes, after beating Ohio State 52-24 in the College Football Playoff championship game Monday night.
- Alabama was the preseason No. 3. In late September it moved up to No. 2.
- “We set this as a goal, to potentially be the greatest team to ever play,” Tide quarterback Mac Jones said. “I think we made a valid statement in winning the national championship tonight.”
- For the Crimson Tide, it is the sixth national title under coach Nick Saban in the last 12 seasons.
