Breaking down and analyzing the 2018 Alabama Crimson Tide football schedule.
2018 Alabama Crimson Tide Football Schedule Analysis
– It’s Alabama, so there will always be an interesting season opener. Louisville – especially without Lamar Jackson – isn’t like dealing with what Florida State was supposed to be going into last season. And that’s it for the non-conference battles, with Arkansas State up next, more Sun Belt fun with Louisiana-Lafayette a few weeks later, and then Citadel late in the season before the Auburn showdown.
– The LSU game is in Baton Rouge, but at least the Tide get a week off to prepare. However, the last three games are in Tuscaloosa – including Auburn – with Texas A&M and Mississippi State coming to town, too. Out of the four true road games, only LSU went bowling last season.
– There’s the date with Tennessee from the East – as always – and it’s on the road, However, hosting Missouri as the other interdivisional battle isn’t bad, and it’s an obvious break to not face Georgia. Not playing Florida isn’t a bad thing, either.
