Alabama continues its trend toward home and home series rather than neutral site games, this time agreeing with the Florida State Seminoles on a couple of dates.

Ten power five games still won’t satisfy those who constantly criticize Alabama’s scheduling, of course. The flip side of all this is that one less small school will be receiving a paycheck that year, an issue that will have to be resolved should this type of schedule become the norm. It is unquestionably better for the fans of the big schools.
For those scoring at home, Casagrande has Alabama’s non-conference slate for the foreseeable future.
