* Las Vegas Main Event games.

The non-conference slate is a highly competitive one including trips to Las Vegas, Austin, and Eugene. The Clemson game will be played in BJCC (aka Legacy Arena). Alabama plays Arkansas State in Huntsville, AL at the Von Braun Center. No ticket information for either game has been released but keep your eyes peeled. They will go fast.

Good news for Tide fans is that unlike last season, there is only one meeting with Kentucky and it is at home. Also traveling to Tuscaloosa for their only match-up is the Florida Gators. Additionally, there is no trip to Vanderbilt with their weird arena, a place where Bama has historically struggled.

The Crimson Tide has one meeting each with Kentucky, Florida, Arkansas, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Texas A&M. Home and Away series are scheduled with Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, and Mizzou.
