  Alabama vs. Vanderbilt In what was a very well played and very exciting game, the Crimson Tide defeated Vanderbilt in Birmingham 12-7. This game marked the second and last time all season that any of Alabama's opponents would score points against the team. After a scoreless first quarter in which Alabama drove deep into Vandy territory twice, Bama finally hit the endzone in the second with a 2 yard J.R. Campbell run for the only points of the first half. In the third quarter John Suther got himself over the white line with a 15 yard run. Vanderbilt added a score later in the quarter but Alabama's defense held strong the rest of the way and the game ended by the final score of 12-7. This game marked the last time for 9 years that Alabama and Vanderbilt did not meet for the final regular season game in a season. The 1930 squad finished the season 10-0, as Southern Conference champions, and as national champions for coach Wallace Wade in his final season at Alabama.
