Alabama’s Return to the Rose Bowl is Special

Alabama’s participation in the BCS National Championship game in the Rose Bowl is very special, and not just because it is the national championship, but because it’s the first time Alabama has played for the National Championship in the Rose Bowl since 1946. 

It all started in 1926, the game that  has been called the one “that changed the South.”  Alabama, being a Southern Team, was not supposed to win because Southern teams were thought to be no match for teams in the North.  Alabama beat Washington in that game and continued to return to the Rose Bowl to win most of the games it played there.

The Tuscaloosa News has a very good story about Alabama’s football history. You can check it out by clicking  this link.
