Alabama added to its list of future opponents as the university announced on Wednesday that it has scheduled a home-and-home series with Boston College. The series is set to begin in 2031 when the Crimson Tide travel to Chestnut Hill, Mass on Sept. 13 and the Eagles will come to Tuscaloosa a few years down the line on Sept. 16 2034.
It will also be the first meeting between the two programs since 1983 and 1984 which took place at Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., and Legion Field in Birmingham, AL.
“The numerous home-and-home matchups that have been scheduled in recent years are going to make for some great football games for our program and our fan base,” Alabama head football coach Nick Saban said. “We are excited to add a trip to Chestnut Hill for the 2031 season and look forward to the challenge that awaits us with the Boston College series.”
Alabama and Boston College have previously met four times on the football field with BC holding a 3-1 edge in the series. The Eagles took both games of a series in 1983 (Foxboro, Mass.) and 1984 (Birmingham). The teams first met in the 1943 Orange Bowl, a 37-21 Crimson Tide victory. Alabama returned to Boston College for a road game in 1946, falling 13-7.
With the addition of Boston College, Alabama has added 12 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), Oklahoma State (2028 & 2029), 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).
