Alabama vs.Georgia

  Date: 9/17/1960  
  Score: 21-6  
  Alabama vs. Georgia The Tide opened the 1960 season against the defending SEC Champion Georgia Bulldogs in front of a National Television audience and shocked the Dawgs 21-6 in Birmingham. After scoring all of their 21 points in the first half, the Tide never looked back. Tommy White scored Bama's first touchdown on a 3 yard run, and Bobby Skelton scored the next two on runs of 1 and 9 yards. If not for a huge 78 yard punt return late in the game by Georgia that left them on the Bama 3 yard line the Tide very well could have shut out the defending champs. The 1960 squad finished with a record of 8-1-2 and with an appearence in the Bluebonnet Bowl for Coach Bryant .
