represented the University of Alabama
for the 2007 NCAA Division I FBS football season
trying to improve from a disappointing 6–7 record in the 2006 season. The Tide was led by its new head coach Nick Saban
, a former head coach of rival LSU

. The Tide defeated Colorado
in the 2007 Independence Bowl
30–24 to finish their first season under Nick Saban at a 7–6 (4–4) record, however two years later the first five wins of the season were vacated as part of a penalty placed against Alabama by the NCAA for infractions committed during the season.
The schedule was ranked as the #7 toughest home schedule.
