Look: Alabama fans have awesome jerseys referencing national title win
Last season’s national title game between Alabama and Georgia was an all-time classic, and now Tide fans have found the perfect way to immortalize it.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell shared an image of an Alabama fan wearing a custom-made “Second And 26” jersey to Saturday’s game against Texas A&M. It’s a perfect reference to the down and yardage when quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw the game-winning touchdown in overtime to clinch the championship for Bama. Rovell says the jerseys have become popular with the Tide faithful.

Alabama’s title defense has been picturesque thus far this season, as they have jumped out to a perfect 3-0 start, maintaining their hold on the No. 1 ranking in the country. Tagovailoa himself has been in top form as well, entering play Saturday with 646 passing yards and eight touchdowns to zero interceptions.
Bama fans were on the wrong side of a jersey trolling around this time last year, so now it’s their turn to have a little bit of apparel-related fun.
