With a BCS National Championship Game win over Notre Dame on Monday night, the Alabama Crimson Tide will have won three of the last four national crowns.
This would make the Tide the first team to do such a thing since Nebraska (1994-97) and only the second to repeat since Alabama did it in 1978-79. Combined with a five-year record of 61-7, this would officially inaugurate the Tide as college football's latest dynasty.
Yes, there is work left to do against the Irish to make this a reality, but Alabama's dominance in college football seems to be all but assured as long as Saban stays in Tuscaloosa.
There have been bumps and bruises along the way, but it has most certainly been a joyful ride for the Tide during the Nick Saban era.
Here is a look at the top-10 most significant wins that Saban has led Alabama to during his tenure at the Capstone.
