Game of the Week

Watch this page during the offseason for periodic updates of classic DAWGS games from this week in history!


1976 Alabama Dawgs knew they had something special with the 1976 team–this game proved how strong the team really was. You can hardly hear Munson over the crowd noise in Sanford, as that Erk’s ’76 defense stifled Jeff Rutledge and The Bear’s Crimson Tide. Munson: “Watch the time! Georgia on the three-and-a-half yard line! Goal to go!”

2002 Alabama DAWG defense held the ‘Bama rushing attack–which came in averaging almost 250 yards per game–to only 109 yards, but Charlie Peprah took a 4th-quarter interception to the house and gave Alabama a one-point lead on a hot day in Tuscaloosa. A key sack by David Pollack on Alabama’s next drive forced a Tide punt from its 14 yard line. Were the DAWGS “man enough?” Munson: “Well! We’re on the Alabama 34!–and the clock is 3:45!”
