Alabama Crimson Tide Football Schedule in 2014
The Alabama Crimson Tide are ready to take to the field and put
together yet another dominant season of college football. The Tide have some tough games on their home schedule this season,
and it's going to take some great play to secure a victory in all of those contests, but if any program is up to the challenge
it's Alabama. The Tide will be looking to down each of their SEC opponents this season, and you can be there to see it unfold.
September 20th the Crimson Tide will host the Florida Gators, one of the best football programs in the SEC and the nation.
The Gators will arrive stocked with an incredible amount of talent on both sides of the ball, and Alabama will have to be
at the top of their game to get the job done. The Gators and Crimson Tide could be fighting for the top spot in the conference
standings by the end of the season, so this relatively early matchup could be a huge factor in how things play out in the
SEC in 2014.
Another huge matchup will be coming the way of the Tide on November 29th when the Auburn Tigers come to
town for the Iron Bowl, one of the best rivalry games in college sports. These two schools have a fantastic rivalry that goes
back a long way, and it's always thrilling football on display when these two programs take the field.

White Team take down the Crimson Team by a score of 17-13. Fans are getting excited to see this team take the field in 2014,
and with good reason.

of its own.
