Who Should Alabama Play in a Home-and-Home Series?
On Tuesday, Aaron Suttles proposed this question: who would you like to see Alabama play in a home and home series? On September 3, Alabama will take on the USC Trojans in AT&T Stadium in Dallas, but would this game be more exciting if it were played in Los Angeles one particular year, then Tuscaloosa the next?
Since Nick Saban took over in Tuscaloosa, it's been a common occurrence for Alabama to face off against a Power 5 team for a non-conference match-up (Clemson, Virginia Tech twice, Penn State twice [as a home and home], Florida State, Michigan, and West Virginia), but Penn State is the only home-and-home series the Tide have had since 2007. In the future, Alabama will play Florida State and Fresno State 2017, plus Louisville in 2018, but with no deal of a home-and-home with any of the three.
Since Auburn and Penn State will have a home-and-home series in 2021 and 2022, this has pushed more Alabama fans to desiring another home-and-home match-up with a Power 5 team. Aaron asked on his show, The Suttles Approach, which team Alabama fans would like to see in a home-and-home. He gave his top picks that he'd like to see, and he also took phone calls from fans expressing their opinions and desires for potential (and, currently, hypothetical) match-ups.
Be sure to catch The Suttles Approach each weekday from 12-2 PM.
