Alabama continues to extend its winning streak, the longest active one in NCAA FBS, no matter which tough opponent appears on its schedule.
The Crimson Tide have beaten SEC rivals Tennessee and Texas A&M in consecutive weeks, pushing their streak to 20 wins in a row. That has them approaching program history, as well as one of the best runs ever in college football.
Nick Saban’s squad has the third-longest win streak in Alabama history. Bear Bryant (1978-80) and Gene Stallings (1991-93) each coached their way to a 28-game win streak, tied for the longest for the Crimson Tide.

Alabama could also be nearing some FBS history if it continues to keep winning.
The Tide have four games left in the regular season and at least one bowl game (potentially two if they make the College Football Playoff, which they are in great position to do).
There has only been a winning streak of 25 games or longer in the FBS 27 times. Oklahoma holds the longest winning streak at 47 games, which spanned from 1953-57.
Alabama’s remaining regular-season schedule features LSU, Mississippi State, Chattanooga, and Auburn.
