This store window display downtown appeared prior to the college football national championship in which the University of Alabama played the University of Texas. The interest in Alabama Crimson Tide products really picked up this year as the team advanced to the Southeastern Conference Championship and beat Florida, then headed to Pasadena, California for the BCS game this past Thursday. Bama beat the Texas Longhorns in a game that became close in the second half until the Tide capitalized on a couple of late fourth quarter turnovers and won 37-21. "We Believe" sums up the feelings of Bama fans who were confident that their team could win its first national championship since 1992.
The Southeastern Conference has won the BCS title a record four straight years.
