Alabama in the Postseason   

       The 2000 season marked the 75th anniversary of the University of Alabama's first bowl game. Alabama has participated in an NCAA record 60 bowl games. . The Tide record in those 61 bowls stands at 35-23-3. The 35 wins are the most in NCAA history.  From 1959 to 1983 the Crimson Tide played in a 25 bowl game at the end of every year, also an NCAA record. Alabama has participated in 17 different bowl games including six trips to the Rose Bowl.
