Win for the history books: Nick Saban surpasses Bobby Bowden's all-time record for wins vs. top 15 teams
Most rate Nick Saban as the greatest college football coach in the game’s history.
For those that believe that, the coach just picked up another stat that backs up his case.
Following Alabama’s 52-24 win over Texas A&M on Saturday, Saban passed Bobby Bowden for most career wins over an AP top 15 opponent in college football history.
Texas A&M entered the game as the No. 13 rated team in the nation, according to the AP poll.
For his career, Saban now owns 57 wins over teams rated in the AP top 15 during his coaching career.
Now Saban will have a chance to pad his stats and add to his list for the rest of his coaching career. By the time he’s done coaching, the Alabama coach is likely to put the record so far out of reach that no one ever catches him.
