Eleven Alabama teams recorded perfect scores in the latest round of academic progress reports released by the NCAA. The Crimson Tide football team (976 APR) tied for second in the SEC and top 40 in the nation for the 2015-16 season.

Perfect APR scores of 1,000 came from Alabama athletes in baseball, men's basketball, men's golf, men's tennis, women's cross country, women's golf, gymnastics and softball. Each of Alabama's teams was at least in the top 50th percentile except for women's basketball (20th-30th), and men's track (20th-30th).

The Tide football team was in the 80th-to-90th percentile within the sport. The 976 score beat averages for public schools (959), all Division I schools (962) and private schools (966).

Among SEC football teams using a multi-year average, only Vanderbilt's 992 is better than Alabama's 980. Auburn and Florida football teams also had 980s.

The APR is calculated based on academic eligibility and graduation rates for NCAA athletes.

See Alabama's full report on the NCAA website.

Nick Saban is regarded as the top coach in college football because of his program's performance on the field.

But since arriving in Tuscaloosa in 2007, Saban has also bolstered the Crimson Tide's standing in the classroom.

This year, Alabama football achieved its highest academic progress rate to date, scoring a 980. When Saban arrived, the Tide's APR was 944. In every academic year since he's been in charge, with the exception of 2012-2013, that number has increased.

"We continue to do a great job of helping our guys develop a career off the field, which is why they should come to school and we're really proud of that," Saban said back in December.

 

11 Alabama teams have perfect academic scores

In January, 22 players who had already earned their degree competed in the Tide's loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff national championship game. Then, last weekend, nine more members of that team walked away with diplomas. When Saban was given a $65 million contract extension earlier this month, the university's president, Stuart R. Bell, pointed out how the Alabama coach had made an impact beyond Bryant-Denny Stadium.

"It is truly remarkable when you look at what Coach Saban has accomplished here over the last decade and how the success of the football program has raised the overall profile of our institution," Bell said. "Those accomplishments are not just on the field, as he has also done an outstanding job emphasizing academics and character development with our student-athletes."
