Alabama crimson is similar (but different) to USC game**** burgundy.

I mixed red fondant with a bit of black fondant until I got the color I wanted.  That particular crimson looks to have just a tad of purple hue to it.  Add a tiny bit at first.  

 

I usually start with a piece small enough that I won't be mad if I have to toss it.  Then add a tiny bit of the purple and a tiny bit of black.  

 

There is also an awesome color mixing chart http://www.howtocookthat.net/public_html/sugar-paste-fondant-cake-decorations/

Yes I know red & blue make purple.  I specifically said purple because the ratio of red to blue is so very small.
