It will be the first time since 1985 that the Tide and Trojans battled on the gridiron. Coach Walter “Ray” Perkins guided Alabama to a 24-3 victory over USC in the Aloha Bowl during that year.
The Tide owns a 5-2 edge over the Trojans in seven meetings, dating back to Sept. 24, 1938.
AT&T Stadium will serve as Alabama’s season-opening venue for the third time since 2012; the year it opened against Michigan and went on to secure a conference title and a national championship.
