Crimson Tide won 26-0 at Denny Stadium in 1966
Alabama and Clemson have only met once in the last 40 years but did play four straight years in the late 1960’s. Frank Howard (Clemson Head Coach) and Paul “Bear” Bryant (Alabama Head Coach) were both Bama graduates. It’s ironic that the current Clemson Head Coach, Dabo Swinney, also graduated from Alabama. That’s a lot of connections between two schools who rarely play each other. Now they meet on the biggest stage Monday night for the National Championship.
