Alabama’s 2012 national championship run was so special that three of its contests ranked in the top five games of 2012, according to ESPN.

ESPN ranked the top 25 college football games of 2012 and the Crimson Tide was involved in three of the top five, but now the network wants fans to have a voice.

Alabama's nail-biting 32-28 victory over Georgia in the SEC Championship, its Nov. 3 comeback victory at LSU, and its 29-24 loss to Texas A&M on Nov. 10 are in the running.

To win, Alabama’s trio of games will have to be chosen over Michigan and South Carolina's showdown in the Outback Bowl and Stanford's overtime victory against then-No. 1 Oregon on Nov. 17.

Fans can vote here. The No. 5 ranked game will air July 27 on ESPNU at 6 p.m, while No. 4 will follow at 9 p.m. with the top three airing July 28 starting at 3 p.m.

Here is the top 25, which includes four other games involving SEC teams.
