Interesting fact. Alabama, the team with three of the last four national championship trophies, has operated the slowest offense in the nation for the past five years. According to FootballStudyHall, Alabama ran fewer plays per minute of possession (2.02) than any team in the Football Bowl Subdivision from 2008-2012. Alabama never ranked higher than 57th in average plays per game in any of those five seasons. A product of its tempo, no team had fewer plays run against its defense than Alabama in 2012. Four of the past five national champions have also finished the year ranked among the top five in scoring defense. Turns out crystal balls are flashy, too.
