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.

With countless player and coaching talents passing through Tuscaloosa for more than a century, one would think the Crimson Tide have pulled at least one over each of their opponents somewhere down the line. Keeping that in mind, here's a look at the full list of FBS opponents Alabama has surprisingly never beaten.
