Mercer – November 16th – Home

This will be one of the best landing spots for Alabama in a loaded 2024 schedule. The Mercer Bears went 9-3 this season a very impressive mark for the team but, compared to a stretch of Georgia, Tennessee, and LSU this will be a comfortable spot for Nick Saban’s team.

Oklahoma – November 23rd – Away

The Crimson Tide will get its first crack at Oklahoma as they enter the SEC after leaving the Big 12. This will be the third season for Brent Venables at Oklahoma after replacing Lincoln Riley. Venables has done a solid job rebuilding Oklahoma after Lincoln Riley gutted the program on its way to USC. The major difference between Oklahoma under Venables is the defense, regarded as one of the nation’s top defensive minds has turned the team around becoming a more balanced team. Venables will be tasked with replacing his offensive coordinator as Jeff Lebby left Oklahoma to become the Head Coach of the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Venables will bring in the seventh-ranked recruiting class while the only major subtraction will be Tyler Guyton an offensive tackle who will be drafted this year.

Auburn – November 30th – Home

Coming off of the Milroe miracle or whatever you’d like to call the 4th and 31 game, it will be a relief for the Iron Bowl to return to Bryant-Denny Stadium. Hugh Freeze has to be pleased with all but, 2 minutes of the Iron Bowl as his team was a miracle away from knocking off the Alabama Football team. Freeze will use this game to recruit both high schoolers and transfers as he continues to build Auburn into a team of his mold. Freeze and the Tigers currently have the nation’s 17th-ranked recruiting class and won’t lose many key players from this year’s team.
