2012 Alabama Football

Alabama won its SEC leading 23rd conference football championship when the Crimson Tide beat No. 3 Georgia, 32-28, in the 2012 SEC Championship Game on December 1 in Atlanta, Ga. The Crimson Tide has won more SEC championships than any other school. It was the second SEC title for head coach Nick Saban at Alabama (he also guided the Crimson Tide to 2009 SEC title). Alabama won the first SEC championship during the 1933 season as head coach Frank Thomas led the Crimson Tide to 5-0-1 conference record. Thomas led Alabama to four SEC championships. Paul “Bear” Bryant directed the Crimson Tide to six national championships and 13 SEC titles during his 25-year run in Tuscaloosa. Alabama won five straight SEC championships from 1971-75 and captured eight of the 10 SEC championships from 1970-79. In addition to Saban, Thomas and Bryant, Alabama has had four other coaches win SEC titles, including Harold “Red” Drew (1953), Bill Curry (1989), Gene Stallings (1992) and Mike DuBose (1999). In addition to its 23 SEC championships, Alabama has also won four Southern Conference titles (1924, 1925, 1926 and 1930), giving the school 27 conference football championships.
