Alabama’s offense struggled mightily in the first half and was still tied with South Florida well into the third quarter.

The score brought back memories to Alabama’s loss to Louisiana-Monroe, which is widely believed to be the worst early loss, especially nonconference, during the Nick Saban era. It was brought up among Alabama media like Mike Rodak of 247Sports, who noted the AP Top 25 poll after that game, and subsequent streak of 248 polls.

What’s more, ABC shared a graphic during the game which stated that Alabama has a streak of 189 straight regular season games without back-to-back losses, which is the 3rd-longest streak of the AP poll era, which dates to 1936.

The halftime score also meant that it’s the fewest points scored in first half by Alabama against a non-Power 5 opponent since Southern Miss in 2000 (0 in each half). And what’s more, it’s the fewest points scored in any half by Alabama vs. non-Power 5 opponent since Louisiana-Monroe in 2007 (0 in second half), per Adam Silverstein.
