For serious football fans wanting to relive the most unforgettable, extraordinary, and gut-wrenching moments in Alabama's history, this account explores the team's greatest plays, providing context, back story, relevant circumstances, and comments from those directly involved in each play. Photos help reanimate memories, including offensive lineman Jerry Duncan's unlikely catch to help beat Nebraska in the 1966 Orange Bowl, the goal-line stand against Penn State that preserved the 1978 National Championship, George Teague ripping the ball away from Miami's Lamar Thomas in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, and Tyrone Prothro's miraculous 2005 catch in a come-from-behind victory against Southern Mississippi.
