Alabama plays its home games at Bryant–Denny Stadium , located on the campus in Tuscaloosa, Alabama . [1] With a capacity of 101,821, [1] Bryant-Denny is the 8th largest non-racing stadium in the world and the seventh largest stadium in the United States.

Of the 27 different head coaches who have led the Crimson Tide, Wade, [14] Thomas, [15] Bryant, [16] and Stallings have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame . The current head coach is Nick Saban, who was hired in January 2007. [17]

In Alabama's 1982 media guide, the last for Coach Bryant, 1934 is listed as the only national championship before Coach Bryant in a footnote about the school's SEC history. In the 1980s, Alabama's Sports Information Director Wayne Atcheson started recognizing five pre-Bryant national championship teams (1925, 1926, 1930, 1934, 1941) by adding them to the University's Football Media Guide. According to Atcheson, he made the effort in the context of disputed titles being claimed by other schools, and "to make Alabama football look the best it could look" to compete with the other claimants. Atcheson maintains that the titles are the school's rightful claims. [21]
