Who had some of the best individual game performances against Alabama?

I immediately think of Deshaun Watson in both national championship games.
Johnny Manziel in 2012.
Others?

Maybe not the best...hard to say, but Randy White played at Maryland and had a great game against Bama in the 1974 season. Coach Bryant went on and on about him on his coaches show. He was a great football player that's for sure.

Since you didn't specify which sport... I was in Coleman when Pete Maravich scored 63 points against Bama. On one occasion he picked up his dribble just past the half-court line. the Bama defender backed off and the crowd is yelling "Shoot! Shoot!... He did. Nothing but net.
Bama won the game. :)
I was there as well; he scored 69; and lost. And; there was a heckuva fight after the game.

I still remember that 2001 Independence Bowl against Iowa St ans Seneca Wallace. It seemed like that guy could do know wrong and I don't see how that last game winning field goal was missed also, but Bama still won.

Gees I had forgotten about the fight. Football players came out of the stands, cheerleaders got it involved. It was wild.
Yep; as Pete was running off the court a Bama male cheerleader gave Pete a "good game" pat on the butt and Pete went after him. There were 3 rows of big guys with shaved heads; the A Club, and they came on the court. Did not end well for the LSU players.

Archie Manning, Legion Field 1969;
Manning completes 33-of-52 passes for 436 yards and two touchdowns. He runs 15 times for 104 yards and another three touchdowns. those were CRAZY numbers in that day.
No player before Manning had ever thrown for 300 yards and run for 100 in a major-college game; he sets school records for pass attempts, completions, yards and total offense.
The first prime time televised college game. Bama won 33-32; still the best game I have ever seen in person.
