Alabama football used to play games in Mobile

Alabama used to play games in Ladd Stadium in Mobile. 

In fact, Paul W. "Bear" Bryant's first game as head coach at Alabama in 1958 was at Ladd Stadium. 

It lost to No. 15 LSU, 13-3, but in this case the score was deceptive. The Tigers went on to have an undefeated season and claimed the national title. 

Week 2, Alabama managed to tie No. 20 Vanderbilt, and went on to post a very respectable 5-4-1 record. 

Overall, from 1948-68, Alabama went 10-7-2 at Ladd Stadium.
