Stadium: Alabama To Play Wisconsin To Start 2015 Season

Posted Mar 20, 2013


While Alabama ended its football season hoisting the national championship trophy in Miami, it began at Cowboys Stadium with a convincing win over Michigan.

The Crimson Tide are certainly hoping for that kind of start and finish with a return trip to Cowboys Stadium to kick off the 2015 season as well against another Big 10 opponent.

Alabama and Wisconsin have agreed to play in the annual Cowboys Classic at Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 5, 2015.

The game pits just the second all-time meeting between the two storied programs and the first since 1928. Wisconsin has never played at Cowboys Stadium while Alabama has just one appearance – last year’s 41-14 win over Michigan.

The Cowboys Classic began the first year of Cowboys Stadium back in 2009 as BYU and Oklahoma played the first-ever football game at the stadium in Arlington. TCU and Oregon State met in the 2010 game, followed by LSU’s win over Oregon in 2011 and then Alabama-Michigan last year.

LSU and TCU will square off this season, followed by Florida State and Oklahoma State in 2014.

Other college games scheduled for Cowboys Stadium this season include Notre Dame/Arizona State and Baylor/Texas Tech, along with the AT&T Cotton Bowl next January.
