USC vs. Alabama in 2016?

Could USC open its 2016 schedule against Alabama? Scout's SCPlaybook has the latest details...

Rumors began to swirl on Wednesday morning of a USC versus Alabama matchup at Cowboy Stadium to kickoff the 2016 football season.

The root of the rumor stems back to radio host Dan Patrick, who said on his show that he had been tipped off about the game, though was unable to confirm it.

By Wednesday afternoon, a USC spokesperson told Scout that USC is often approached in regards to scheduling opportunities. The spokesperson confirmed that the Trojans have indeed been approached about playing the game against Alabama and they are considering it.

However, USC says scheduling the contest comes with multiple obstacles, including a full schedule already in place for 2016, as well as financial ramifications.

USC is scheduled to open its 2016 season on Sept. 3, hosting New Mexico in the L.A. Coliseum.
