As Bama players had come 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.
