On Thursday, Alabama Senators Richard Shelby (R) and Jeff Sessions (R) introduced a resolution commending the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team for their BCS national championship game victory over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Senator Shelby said in the joint resolution, “I congratulate the University of Alabama Crimson Tide for winning the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. The University, the Crimson Tide faithful, and the entire State of Alabama can be proud of this team not only for winning, but for representing us on the national stage with integrity and class. Under Coach Saban’s impeccable leadership, the Tide dominated in the first half, both highlighting the skills of star players Eddie Lacy, T.J. Yeldon, and A.J. McCarron, as well as the cohesive playing power of the entire team. I am proud to represent a state whose esteemed universities have brought home the national title for four years in a row and counting. I would also like to offer my congratulations to Notre Dame on a great team and an outstanding season.”
