  Date: 10/13/1956  
  Score: 6-23  
  Alabama vs. Texas Christian Once again the Bama offense was stifled by a tough Horned Frog defense, but it was the TCU offense that was the story with its famed "Jim Swink deception play" which produced touchdowns of 46 and 41 yards for TCU in this 23-6 win over the Tide. TCU's defense held Bama on five drives which ended near the goal line. The one Alabama touchdown came off of a Jim Loftin 10 yard run. The 1956 squad finished the season 2-7-1 for coach J.B. "Ears" Whitworth.
