AT&T Stadium is the Crimson Tide’s second home away from Bryant-Denny Stadium.

A press release from the University of Alabama confirmed this today, as the Tide will face Southern California at 7:00 p.m. (CT) in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, Sept. 3. ABC will televise the game.

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.
