As Bama players came off of a recent upset to Louisiana Tech they needed to rally together and focus on winning football games.  The team’s seniors, including Shaun Alexander (#37) and Chris Samuels (#60), helped do just that.  Bama met the third ranked Florida Gators in the Swamp on October 2, 1999.  The entire game was a battle – Florida’s scores came on quick-strike attacks, and Alabama answered with controlled marches down the field.  Neither team was able to establish dominance.  The scored was tied 33-33 at the end of regulation.  In overtime, Florida scored a quick TD, but missed their extra point.  Alabama responded with a touchdown, but also missed their extra point; however, a flag was thrown on the play, and Bama was given another attempt – the extra point was good!  Alabama had beaten the Florida Gators, breaking their 5-year, 30-game winning streak in the Swamp.  This exciting Tide victory announced the ‘rebirth’ of the 1999 team and Alabama’s dominance in the world of college football.
