2007 Football Schedule

The two things most notable in Alabama's 2007 football schedule, which was officially released today, are the Florida State game on September 29 and the open date on October 27. The schedule is the same as that unofficially listed in the 2006 'BAMA Football Yearbook.

The last game to be determined in next year's Alabama football schedule is against Western Carolina, which will be the season-opening game for the Crimson Tide on September 1 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The FSU game on September 29 from the Alltel Stadium Jacksonville, Florida, is officially a neutral site.

Unlike this season, when Bama plays 12 consecutive weeks, the Crimson Tide will have an open date late in the 2007, on October 27, between the Tennessee and Mississippi State games.

The Crimson Tide's 12-game regular season schedule features clashes at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa with traditional SEC foes Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and LSU, in addition to non-conference battles with Western Carolina, Houston and Louisiana-Monroe.

Four of the five games away from Tuscaloosa will be against SEC opponents: at Vanderbilt, at Ole Miss, at Mississippi State, and at Auburn.

The 2007 SEC Football Championship Game is slated to be held Saturday, December 1, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Alabama will not face consecutive weeks facing road games in 2007.

The Crimson Tide, coming off a 10-2 record in 2005 that was capped by a 13-10 victory over Texas Tech in the Cotton Bowl, opens the 2006 season on Saturday, September 2, against the University of Hawaii at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Kickoff time is to be determined.
