Well, Alabama gets some great season openers over the next few years, to say the least.
The team has its next two opening games at Dallas’ AT&T Stadium, facing Wisconsin and USC respectively, and then opens against Florida State in Atlanta in 2017. Whereas most top programs open their seasons with tuneup games, Alabama is instead getting seemingly thrown to the wolves to start things off.
It’s exciting for Louisville too, as the Cardinals open their 2015 campaign in Atlanta against Auburn.
In 2018, with two games left to schedule, Bobby Petrino’s squad will face two SEC opponents in Alabama and in-state rival Kentucky.
That all being said, can 2018 hurry up and arrive, please?
