Alabama’s matchup at South Carolina marked the 17th meeting between Tide head coach Nick Saban and one of his former assistants. South Carolina’s Will Muschamp was an assistant under Saban at LSU from 2001-2004, serving as the Tiger’s linebackers coach in 2001, before rising to become the LSU defensive coordinator in 2002. Muschamp also left LSU with Saban after the 2004 season to join the Miami Dolphins staff as the assistant head coach. Saban is 17-0 all-time against his former staffers during his tenure at Alabama. Saban has three wins vs. Will Muschamp (Florida, 2011 and 2014; South Carolina 2019), Derek Dooley (Tennessee, 2010-12) and Jim McElwain (Colorado State, 2013; Florida 2015-16), two wins over Mark Dantonio (Michigan State, 2010-15), Jimbo Fisher (Florida State 2017, Texas A&M 2018), and Kirby Smart (Georgia, 2018 CFP National Championship Game and SEC Championship) and one win over Billy Napier (Louisiana, 2018) and Jeremy Pruitt (Tennessee, 2018).
