The Alabama Crimson Tide are among the top of college football's most elite and storied programs, and you don't get a seat at that kind of table without earning it over sustained periods of success against a wide variety of opponents.

While one might think the Crimson Tide would have dropped at least one game to most of the country's major opponents somewhere down the line, here's a look at the five most impressive FBS opponents Alabama has surprisingly never lost to.
