On these dates in Crimson Tide history …

September 20, 1986: Running back Bobby Humphrey rushes for 114 yards, and Alabama outgains Florida on the ground 223-42 during the Crimson Tide's stunning 21-7 win in Gainesville. The Gators had taken a 7-0 halftime lead, but Ray Perkins’ team completely dominated the second half in the first meeting of the teams since 1979. – Bryant Museum
