The lone hole remaining on Alabama’s 2014 schedule has been filled.
In joint press releases, Alabama and Southern Miss announced that they have agreed to a one-off game next season. The game is slated for Sept. 13, 2014, and, of course, will be played at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
The 2014 meeting will mark the 43rd game between the two football programs, with Southern Miss noting it’s the fourth-longest series in the school’s history. The Tide and Eagles have not played since the 2005 season.
UA had previously announced 2014 games against West Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, FAU and FCS-level Western Carolina. In late August, the SEC released the 2014 conference schedule.
The Southern Miss contest gives the Tide seven home games, four road games and one neutral site game (Georgia Dome) next season.
