  • Bama Negotiating with Notre Dame, Texas on Home-and-Home Series

    Looks like Byrnes may be trying to bring back some quality non-conference games to Tuscaloosa!

    Alabama is negotiating to schedule a home-and-home football series with Notre Dame, The Tuscaloosa News has learned.

    The Crimson Tide last participated in an out-of-conference home-and-home series in 2010-11 against Penn State, hosting the Nittany Lions in 2010 and traveling to State College, Pa., in 2011.

    UA Director of Athletics Greg Byrne would not confirm that the schools are in talks, but did say the athletic department is pursuing future two-game deals that would have Alabama play a game at Bryant-Denny Stadium and also play on the opposing school’s campus.
    “I’ll say that we are exploring some home-and-homes,” Byrne said.

    The Notre Dame deal has not been finalized. If it comes to fruition, the series would not likely take place until well into the next decade because Notre Dame has several other contracted high-profile games in future years.

    I bet they claim scheduling issues until 2030 so as to avoid another Saban led ass whipping
