Alabama, 1961

The national championship team, Bear Bryant's first, was honored before the Alabama-Kent State game on Saturday. That was the team that allowed just 25 points all year (including a 10-3 win over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl). At left are QB Pat Trammell (12), LB Darwin Holt (32) and tackle Billy Neighbors (73).
