I'm so excited about Alabama playing against Ohio State in the 2027 and 2028 seasons.  When they have played each other in the past, the game has always been played at a neutral site.  The 2027 match-up will be the first meeting between these two powerful programs where one will have a home-field advantage.  I'm reminded of when Penn State came to Tuscaloosa on a hot day in September, 2010, and of the Tide's 24-3 beat down.  Before that game, I got the chance to interview Coach Bobby Bowden, who was in town promoting his book, and he kept saying "Penn State ain't ready for this Alabama humidity."  He was 100% right, and Bama's dynamic duo running backs, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson, ran through that Nittany Lion defense like it was a wet paper sack.

Ohio State is second, while Alabama is tied for fourth, in ALL TIME WINS, so that should tell ya how big these two games will be.  Nick Saban told AL.com, "I have coached a lot of years in the SEC and Big 10, and Bryant-Denny Stadium and Ohio Stadium are two of the very best environments in college football.  Non-conference series like Alabama-Ohio State are so important to the health of college football, and we are very pleased that we could get this series completed."  #RollTide #WildBillShow
