TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Kickoff times for Alabama's first three home football games have been set, as well as the Oct. 16 Homecoming game with Southern Miss, according to Athletics Director Mal Moore.
The Sept. 4 season opener against Utah State will kickoff at 6 p.m. (CDT), while the Tide's SEC opener against Ole Miss on Sept. 11 will be an 8 p.m. start on ESPN2. The Sept. 18 game with Western Carolina will be another 6 p.m. kickoff.
"The opening game at Alabama is always an exciting event," said Moore, "and night games at Bryant-Denny Stadium are a spectacle. We expect a great crowd."
The Tide's Homecoming game with Southern Miss is slated for a 2 p.m. kickoff.
This will mark Alabama's eighth appearance on ESPN2 and the second time Alabama and Ole Miss have been televised on the "Deuce".
