Despite rumors that a high-profile opponent could soon be added to Alabama football’s non-conference schedule for 2016, the school announced Wednesday that Western Kentucky will be officially be a part of that season.

The Hilltoppers will be making its third trip to Tuscaloosa on September 10, 2016, with hopes of improving on 35-0 loss in 2012 and a 41-7 loss in 2008. Western Kentucky athletics director Todd Stewart thinks it will be a benefit to the program and its supporters.

“The five hour drive enables our fans to make the trip to Tuscaloosa and enjoy a terrific college football experience,” Stewart said in a press release. “Our players enjoy the exposure that results from competing at the highest level and many of them have excelled in recent games against strong non-conference opponents.”

Alabama continues to look for non-conference opponents for the next two season. While the Crimson Tide plays Wisconsin and Louisiana-Monroe in 2015, the school is still searching for one school to visit Tuscaloosa. Fans can still expect a high-profile game for 2016 that will likely take place at a neutral site.
