The 1910 Alabama Crimson Tide football team (variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama") represented the University of Alabama in the 1910 college football season. It was the Crimson Tide's 18th overall and 15th season as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). The team was led by head coach Guy Lowman, in his first year, and played their home games at the University of Alabama Quad in Tuscaloosa and the Birmingham Fairgrounds in Birmingham, Alabama. They finished the season with a record of four wins and four losses (4–4 overall, 0–4 in the SIAA).


After Alabama opened the season with shutouts over both Birmingham College and the Marion Military Institute, the Crimsons lost four consecutive games to SIAA opponents by a margin of 104–0. The squad rebounded with a 5–3 victory over Tulane at New Orleans and a 9–0 victory over Washington and Lee to finish the season with an overall record of 4–4.

Before the season

In March 1910, J. W. H. Pollard announced his resignation as head football coach and athletic director, and took the same positions at Washington and Lee University. After several months of searching for a replacement, in August the University's Committee on Athletics hired Guy Lowman from the University of Missouri to serve as both head football coach and athletic director. With his hiring, many expected him to successfully guide the football team through what was viewed as it's toughest schedule in school history.

The team reported for its first practice on September 10, and at that time six players returned with at least one season of experience with he Crimson and White. At the start of practice, coach Lowman identified as the teams weakest positions being the linemen and backs.
