Bama lost in a wild 43-37 shootout against Ole Miss early on, with a miraculous finish needed to put the game away. That was a loaded Rebel team that won ten games and whacked a fantastic Oklahoma State in the Sugar Bowl.
Including Charleston Southern – who doesn’t count in the CFN Historical Season Formula as anything more than a win, since it’s an FCS team – 2015 Alabama ended up beating 13 teams that finished with a winning record, and ULM was the only outlier.
To take this even further, a ridiculous 12 of the 15 games were against teams that finished with nine wins or more, ten of the 15 were against teams that finished with nine wins or more, and seven of those teams finished with ten wins or more.
Other than a tough 19-14 win over Tennessee, Bama didn’t have too many issues after the Ole Miss loss, pushed past Florida in the SEC Championship, steamrolled over Michigan State 38-0 in the CFP semifinal, and hung on against Deshaun Watson ant Clemson in an epic national championship.
