I think, uhm, you might have time to plan for this one.

Alabama continues to beef up its non-conference schedule by adding another traditional college football power to the program’s future schedule by announcing a home-and-home series with Oklahoma.

The first matchup between the two schools will take play at Oklahoma on Sept. 11, 2032, with the return trip occurring the following season on Sept. 10, 2033, at Alabama.

“We’ve worked diligently at adding high-caliber home-and-home series to our future football non-conference schedules, and we are excited to announce this one with Oklahoma for the 2032 and 2033 seasons,” Alabama director of athletics Greg Byrne said via statement. “Alabama and Oklahoma are two of the most storied programs in college football history, and this certainly will give both teams and fan bases a tremendous opportunity during the regular season.”
Nick Saban also released a statement following the news:

“Alabama and Oklahoma are two of the most tradition-rich programs in college football history, and we are pleased to be able to add a home-and-home series with them to our schedule in 2032 and 2033. We played an exciting game with OU this past season in the Orange Bowl and matchups like this are so important to college football. It is not only great for the fans, but our team always enjoys challenges like these outside of SEC play.”

According to Alabama, the two programs have met six times with the Sooners currently holding the all-time edge in the series at 3-2-1. Of course, the Crimson Tide most recently beat Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, 45-34 last season.








Will the nzaa still be around by then?

Rumors are out there already that this home and home could mark the last season of the Nick Saban reign. We'll see.

Crap like this is so meaningless and pointless to me. I do not care what games they are scheduling 20 years from now. This is insanity.

Would love to around to see. Lol.

Thinking the same thing. I gripe on a lot of things but playing some of the teams we play in non conference is laughable IMO. We are the true blue blood of college football, the cream of the crop and we play some of the teams we do???? Not impressed! Heck, if we are going to play northeastern, southwestern state money to come to Tuscaloosa, let's pay one of the state schools to come in for a game and help their athletic department out.

When the 12th game was added it was originally thought there would be many more big games....and in someway it has worked....but still have the "buy a win" games that are so prevalent....would be great to see them drop to 2 instead of 3 on the schedule.....
And agree with u @alabama mike pay the instate schools.... keep it home

Those who originally thought there would be many more big games failed to see the guy in the back of the forum rooms waving his arms and yelling, "wait a minute, you missed something." That guy was me and what they missed was that on the EXACT same day that the 12th game was added, the rule that prohibited 1A schools from playing 1AA schools more than once every four years was eliminated. The 12th game was added to give 1AA schools a larger share of the pie.

This got me wondering just how many watershed moments we've had in college football. Too many. Some have added excitement and interest in the game and others have just fed the wild beasts. Here are but a few that matters most to me.

The elimination of conference winners being mandated to play another specific conference winner in a specific bowl was great. The advent of Kramer's brain scheme to divide the Southeastern conference into divisions and call it a true championship was a lot more just mindless. Ironically, the only power 5 football conference that has actually executed it in a fair manner is the Big 12 and only recently because they have only 10 teams and decided on a round-robin and can't screw up the 2 best teams actually playing each other in the end.

Going to 12 games was noble enough if it was an opportunity to beef up the schedule for the big boys. Instead, we get inundated with directional schools and we have to watch as Bama plays bully ball with local state teams.

The greatest miracle in our sports history, we finally get a 4 team playoff. A group of actual, living, breathing humans making the selection was perhaps the second greatest. But no good deed goes unpunished. In 2008, the powers that be thought it a great idea to go to the constant running 40-second clock. Suddenly defenses couldn't get off the field because it opened the floodgates for great offensive minds, like the Gus Bus, to run their version of the hurry up. And every football team in the country has been trying to play defense ever since. Update: It still ain't working.

Watershed moments....add....
**Mandating safer helmets and face guards....
**allowing teams to substitute as many players as desired after change of possessions....
**protocal for injuries....especially head injuries
**change in scholarships total and each year...major reductions to spead out talent
**soccer style kickers as opposed to straight on style ( more evolution then change)
**additional refs added to game...
**air travel as opposed to bus travel. Even if bus travel would be faster?
A lot more i am sure @TUSKtimes

Not sure what you are attempting to say about the CCGs, but Roy Kramer doesn't deserve any credit nor blame. All he did was take a NCAA rule that was never intended for 1A football and apply it to 1A football. Absolutely nothing original. Took the rule exactly as written which required a minimum of 12 teams, divided into divisions with a minimum of 6 teams, with both divisions playing a round robin schedule, which allowed the winner of each division to play a CG.

The rule was relaxed for the Big 12 in regard to the minimum teams and divisions but not in regard to the playing of a round robin schedule. IMO, the Big 12 made a huge mistake with the direction they took because of the possibility of an undefeated team being eliminated from the CFP by losing in their CG to a team they would have already defeated in the round robin schedule.

Going to a 12 game schedule was intended to give 1AA schools a larger share of the revenue. See my post above.

What I'm saying is the CCG doesn't guarantee the 2 best teams in the conference play one another. It never has. Yes, the Big 12 gets it right as far as the 2 best teams going at it, but not because of common sense, but rather a 9 game conference schedule lets them play a round robin non-divisional format with only 10 teams.

Got it. Blame or credit the NCAA in either event. It is their method of allowing a CG be played. And they are the reason the Big 12 is playing the 9 game conference schedule. If the Big 12 was still 12 teams and did not want to have divisions, they would be required to play an 11 game round robin conference schedule in order to be allowed to have a CG.
