We are exactly one month away from the first Saturday of the college football season. No better time than to bring up a humbling fact: Nick Saban’s last victory over an FBS opponent came on November 16, 2013 against Mississippi State. Since then, he has beaten Chattanooga State and lost to Auburn and Oklahoma.
Since defeating the Bulldogs on that November evening last year, 97 other college football head coaches have won a game. Guys like T.J. Weist, Dan Enos, Mark Hudspeth, Rick Stockstill, Joey Jones, Jeff Monken, and Clay Helton. (If you’re thinking, “Who!?” you’re not alone.)

It’s been awhile since FNS has published a news story but it’s been even longer since Nick Saban has won a football game. The last football game that Nick has coached and won was back in 2013 in the month of November. To be more precise:
- Location: Tuscaloosa, Alabama (Bryant-Denny Stadium)
- Game start: 1:06 p.m.
- Elapsed time: 2:39
- Game attendance: 100,179
- Game weather: 54°, Wind N 13 mph, Overcast
- Referee: Hubert Owens
- TV announcers (CTSN): Chris Stewart (play-by-play), Tyler Watts (color), Tom Roberts (sideline)
- Final Score: Alabama 49, Chattanooga 0
Most people would get fired if they did not do their job for that length of time. We need to fire Nick and move on!
And the days keep adding up…
