The 1906 Alabama Crimson White football team[A 1] (variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama") represented the University of Alabama in the 1906 college football season. It was Alabama's 14th overall and 11th season as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). The team was led by head coach J. W. H. Pollard, in his first year, and played their home games at both the University of Alabama Quad in Tuscaloosa and the Birmingham Fairgrounds in Birmingham, Alabama. They finished the season with a record of five wins and one loss (5–1 overall, 3–1 in the SIAA).

Of note during the season was Alabama's 78–0 loss to Vanderbilt that still stands as the record for most points allowed by Alabama in a game and most lopsided Alabama loss.[3] In the game, the Commodores led 57–0 at the half, and Alabama attempted to cancel this game after seven of their regular players were sidelined by injury but Vanderbilt refused.[4]

Schedule[edit]

For the 1906 season, point values were different from those used in contemporary games. In 1906 a touchdown was worth five points, a field goal was worth four points and an conversion (PAT) was worth one point.[5]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Alabama football teams were not referred to as the "Crimson Tide" until the 1907 season. Prior to 1907, the team was called the "Crimson White" from 1893 to 1906 and the "Cadets" in 1892.[1][2]
