  Alabama vs. Florida Coming off a devastating 42-6 loss to Arkansas a week earlier, nobody gave the Tide a chance to defeat the mighty Gators of Florida. Alabama, under the leadership of freshman quarterback Andrew Zow, came up just short in losing to the Gators by a score of 16-10. Ryan Pflugner would get Bama on the board with his 40 yard field goal in the first, and Dustin McClintock would score the Tide's lone touchdown with his 1 yard plunge in the third. For the game, Alabama's defense only allowed Florida a single touchdown. The 1998 squad finished the season with a record of 7-5 and with an appearance in the Music City Bowl for coach Mike Dubose.
