Alabama, Cincinnati in discussions about future football dates

NCAA Football: Cincinnati at Miami (Ohio)

Tommy Tuberville could get another shot at Alabama.

Alabama and Cincinnati are currently in discussions about future football dates, even as early as next season. The Tide still need a 2015 non-conference opponent, and Cincinnati is opening its new stadium in 2015. It could be a beautiful collision.

Alabama will open the season against Wisconsin in Dallas, as well as play Louisiana-Monroe at home. Adding an additional away game at Cincinnati would mean the Tide play just six home games, as opposed to the desired seven, knowing the game against the Badgers will be on a neutral field.

If this matchup were to happen, Cincinnati would receive the biggest benefit, although Alabama fans would concede that with the opportunity to put it on Tuberville one more time, as the former Auburn coach is 7-3 against Alabama.
