Best Answer

Yes, Namath, in his senior year, was the starting QB on Alabama's 1964 National Championship team.

However, a Namath and Bryantknee injury that year prevented Namath from starting in the Orange Bowl against Texas, although he was voted most valuable player of the game, based on less than three quarters of play.

The Crimson Tide actually lost that Orange Bowl game to the University of Texas 21-17; but the team was still crowned national champion.
