Nick Saban has put together one of the best careers for a college football coach in history. Saban now has four national titles, four SEC titles and has never coached a losing season in college.
Since arriving at Alabama, Saban has faced a number of legendary coaches that carry the same swagger as Nick on the field. Their career numbers are strong, and their reputations are stronger. One thing in common is that Saban has chewed up their teams and spit them out consistently.
Before Hog-gate, Bobby Petrino was one of the best coaches in the SEC. In four years at Arkansas—including 10-win and 11-win seasons—Petrino never beat Saban. Legendary coach Frank Beamer brought his squad to Atlanta and lost big a few years ago.
Another coach that never had the upper hand on Nick Saban was Urban Meyer—a legend in his own right. Taking a look back at the coaches that have faced Saban, here is the power ranking of the best coaches that Nick Saban has chewed up and spit out.
