TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama has celebrated its third BCS National Championship in four years on the steps of Bryant-Denny Stadium in front of thousands of crimson- and white-clad fans.
The day began Saturday with a parade down University Boulevard that concluded at the walk of champions outside the stadium. Players, coaches and support staff walked through the plaza, which honors every national championship and SEC championship team in the Crimson Tide's illustrious history, and up to a stage set up outside the stadium.
Head coach Nick Saban addressed the crowd on the sunny day, along with UA president Judy Bonner and Director of Athletics Mal Moore.
Radio broadcaster Eli Gold, who calls the Crimson Tide's games on the Crimson Tide Sports Network, emceed the ceremonies, which ended with confetti, fireworks and a highlight video of Alabama's 42-14 win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Jan. 7 championship game.
