Best 2024 Schedule for Alabama Football

There is a legitimate unknown about the 2024 season. It is how many losses will knock a team out of the expanded CFB Playoff field. Most presumptions are one or maybe two SEC and Big Ten teams would make the field with two losses. No one knows if a third loss in the championship game of either conference would disqualify a team.

Also, there is some conjecture that up to four SEC teams, each with no more than one loss, could make the Playoffs.

In the best 2024 Crimson Tide schedule below, all regular season games are included. A presumption is made that even if Alabama could reschedule or cancel any of its 2024 out-of-conference games, it would be best to keep them in place. With the SEC schedule, plus a road trip to Wisconsin, and a potential SEC Championship game, the Crimson Tide’s strength of schedule would be tough enough.

  • Game 1 – Aug. 31, Western Kentucky at Bryant-Denny
  • Game 2 – Sept. 7, USF in Tuscaloosa
  • Game 3 – Sept. 14, at Wisconsin
  • Game 4 – Sept. 21, at Ole Miss
  • Game 5 – Sept. 28, Home against either Texas A&M or Oklahoma
  • Game 6 – Oct. 5, Arkansas in Tuscaloosa
  • Oct. 12 – Open Date
  • Game 7 – Oct. 19, at Tennessee
  • Game 8 – Oct. 26, at Missouri
  • Game 9 – Nov. 2, Mercer in Tuscaloosa
  • Game 10 – Nov. 9, at LSU
  • Game 11 – Nov. 16, Mississippi State in Tuscaloosa
  • Game 12 – Nov. 23, Auburn in Tuscaloosa
