A victory over Notre Dame could trigger the NCAA to award Alabama a dynasty designation.
The NCAA will award dynasty status to programs that reach a title runs during a 10 year period. Bama last got this designation in the 70s--Miami had Dynasty status in the 80s. Fla State in the 90s. Very rare accomplishment.
Does anyone know how the NCAA evaluates the dynasty criteria and when they decide to reward it?
Reference to NCAA announcement of FSU Dynasty recognition
The Seminoles have a legendary coach, a tradition of excellence and a record of dominance that is unprecedented in college football history. Recently the NCAA declared FSU a "dynasty".
