The Alabama Crimson Tide have finalized their 2014 football schedule with the addition of Southern Miss, the school announced today.
Alabama will host the Southern Miss Golden Eagles at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Sept. 13, 2014. The two schools have met 42 times, but not since a 30-21 Alabama win in 2005 that was ultimately vacated. Officially, Bama leads the overall series 33-6-2.
The Crimson Tide open the 2014 season in the second game of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta against West Virginia on Saturday, Aug. 30. Boise State takes on Ole Miss in the first game on Thursday evening.
Alabama then hosts Florida Atlantic on Sept. 6 before facing Southern Miss. Bama’s final non-conference game of the 2014 season is at home vs. Western Carolina on Nov. 22.
In SEC play, the Crimson Tide host Florida, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, and Auburn and travel to Ole Miss, Arkansas, Tennessee, and LSU.
Alabama’s two open dates in 2014 are again well placed. The Tide will enjoy their off week prior to an Oct. 4 trip to Ole Miss and before their visit to LSU on Nov. 8.
