Tuscaloosa, AL, United States (4E Sports) – Alabama now has a schedule to play USC, in fulfilment of an SEC mandate to play at least one non-conference game against a Big Five conference school starting in 2016.
It will be held on Sept. 3 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Last summer, Alabama canceled a previously scheduled home-and-home series with Michigan State for 2016 and ’17.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said the cancellation was due to Michigan State’s refusal to move the game to a neutral site.
The matchup with USC is the latest of Alabama’s high-profile neutral-site openers, having been booked to play West Virginia in Atlanta this season and Wisconsin in Arlington in 2015.
