Top Plays of the Alabama Football 2012 National Championship Season: "The Battle of the Freshmen"

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

Players report for camp the first weekish of August.

The Set-up

These are what we here at RBR considered the "Top" 16 plays of the 2012 championship season. I'm sure there are some that I forgot to include, sorry (not sorry). The plays are listed 1-16 in a somewhat random order and is a single elimination contest.

Some Things To Consider..

This is purely an opinion poll and you are free to vote based on whatever criteria you deem worthy. It's about which play was your favorite. (But I swear if y'all pick a play just cause it was against Auburn I will burn this place to ground).

This is for funsies, you guys. Yes, we fully understand Alabama wins championships as a team blah blah blah. But we as fans are able to (or at least should be able to) look at individual moments during a season and claim one as "the greatest".

"The Battle of the Freshmen"

TJ Yeldon Superman TD Dive Against Mizzou

On a wet day in Columbia, MO, the the Mizzou Tigers got their first glimpse of Alabama football- to the tune of a 42-10 drumming. This particular play came mid way through the 2nd quarter when Alabama was already leading 21-0. 2nd and 11, from the 15 yard line, freshman TJ Yeldon takes the handoff, follows his pulling blockers to the right side, weaves his way around some defenders and right about the 9 yard line he does this...

Amari Cooper's Leaping Catch Over Baccari Rambo

This play wasn't a touchdown and in fact I believe this drive ended on a turnover in the redzone. Doesn't matter. This was a spectacular play, by yep, another freshman. Oh and BTW, this came against one of the top SENIOR defenders in the SEC...

Actually, Rambo makes more than one appearance in this contest..
