Featuring stunning action photography and expert analysis from author Christopher Walsh, this is the definitive account of Alabama's 16th national championship. There was no holding back the Crimson Tide in 2015. Alabama's triumph in Arizona capped a 14-1 campaign. Behind Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry and the nation's top defense, Coach Nick Saban's team overcame a Week 3 loss to Ole Miss and emerged as the top team in the SEC, posting statement wins over three Top 10 opponents in conference play before topping Florida in the SEC Championship Game. That win earned Alabama a spot in the College Football playoff for the second year in a row. Alabama avenged a loss to Ohio State in the semifinal a year earlier, throttling Michigan State 38-0 to set up the matchup with Clemson. Sweet 16 takes fans through Alabama's exciting journey. From the season-opening victory over Wisconsin to dominant wins over Georgia and LSU to the to the nail-biting drama of the College Football Playoff, this commemorative edition includes profiles of Henry, quarterback Jake Coker, linebacker Reggie Ragland, and other Alabama Stars. Also featuring a foreword by The Voice of Alabama Football, Eli Gold, Sweet 16 is the perfect book for Alabama fans.
