# 1 Alabama 24 - # 18 Penn State 3

Between 1959 and 1990, Alabama and Penn State met on the gridiron a total of 13 times. The first three occasions the two teams faced each other were in high-stakes bowl games but for the entire 1980s the two teams were an annual regular season matchup. The Crimson Tide and the Nittany Lions resumed their unique rivalry last season, a full twenty years after the last contest. On Saturday, Alabama will return to Beaver Stadium for the first time since 1989. To mark this auspicious occasion Roll Bama Roll is taking a looking back at the history of this series through the game program covers.
