The Alabama-Colorado State game has been set for a 6 p.m. Central kick next Saturday. The game will be televised by either ESPN2 or ESPNU. If Alabama wins this weekend against Texas A&M the Tide will more than likely be on ESPN2, with the other game pitted for that timeslot being Texas A&M-SMU.

Former Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain will bring his Rams into Bryant-Denny Stadium after a poor start to 2013, dropping the first two game of the year to Coloardo and Tulsa.
