Alabama has once again added to its list of future opponents as a new home-and-home series with Oklahoma State was announced on Tuesday. The series between the two programs will begin in 2028 and continue in 2029 while shifting the Crimson Tide’s series with Notre Dame to the 2029 and 2030 seasons.
In 2028 the Crimson Tide will be traveling to Stillwater, Okla., on Sept 23 with the Cowboys coming to Tuscaloosa on Sept. 15, 2029. It will also be the first home-and-home series between the programs and just the second third meetings in the series.
“This series with Oklahoma State continues to show our commitment to solidifying quality home-and-home matchups for our future football schedules,” said Alabama Director of Athletics Greg Byrne. “We look forward to visiting Stillwater in 2028 and welcoming the Cowboys to Tuscaloosa the following year.”
Alabama and Oklahoma State have met just one time on the football field, the 2006 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. The Cowboys came away with a 34-31 victory in the last game played prior to the arrival of Coach Saban in Tuscaloosa.
“We are very excited to add another excellent opponent to our future non-conference schedule with the addition of Oklahoma State,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “Greg Byrne and our administration have done a great job of scheduling outstanding football games that benefit both our program and our fans.”
With the addition of Oklahoma State, Alabama has added 11 home-and-home series to future schedules recently, including: Texas (2022 & 2023), Wisconsin (2024 & 2025), Florida State (2025 & 2026), West Virginia (2026 & 2027), Ohio State (2027 & 2028), Notre Dame (2029 & 2030), Georgia Tech (2030 & 2031), Oklahoma (2032 & 2033), Arizona (2032 & 2033) and Virginia Tech (2034 & 2035). The Crimson Tide also has a 2-for-1 home-and-home series with South Florida (2023, 2024 & 2026).
Alabama opens the 2021 season with the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Miami (Fla.) on Sept. 4 at 2:30 p.m. CT inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
