Commemorate Alabama football’s run to the CFP final with our new book

The Tuscaloosa News
The Tuscaloosa News, in association with Pediment Books, is producing a book to commemorate Alabama football's 2020 season.

To be able to play in 2020, Alabama football had to stiff-arm an unprecedented virus.

To finish the regular season undefeated, win the SEC championship and reach the College Football Playoff, the Crimson Tide had to undergo rigorous COVID-19 testing and withstand the temporary loss of its legendary coach to a positive diagnosis.

And now Alabama has a chance to win the 18th national championship in program history, after beating Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl national semifinal in Dallas on Friday.

Led by a juggernaut offense that saw three players – quarterback Mac Jones, record-setting receiver DeVonta Smith and bruising running back Najee Harris – finish in the top five in Heisman Trophy voting, the Crimson Tide rolled, rolled and rolled its way to SEC championship glory in 2020, finishing 10-0 in the COVID-19-shortened regular season before outlasting Florida to win its seventh conference title in Nick Saban’s 14 seasons in Tuscaloosa.

Packed with expert analysis and stunning action photography from the Tuscaloosa News and USA Today, Tide Unstoppable: The Inside Story of Alabama’s Roll to Glory in 2020 takes fans through Alabama's amazing journey, from dealing with a global pandemic to reaching the College Football Playoff championship game for the fifth time in its seven-year history.
