Next up. Alabama vs. the world.

The Crimson Tide opens this season against Wisconsin, will play Southern California in the 2016 opener and will then take on Florida State to open 2017.

And earlier today, ESPN.com reported that Alabama will play Louisville in the teams’ 2018 openers.

The game will be held in Orlando, joining Arlington, Texas (2012, this season and next) and Atlanta (2008, 2009, 2013, 2014, 2017) in a list of neutral site openers for Alabama.

Alabama hasn’t opened at home since 2011 and is 5-0 in neutral-site openers since 2008, having defeated Clemson, Virginia Tech twice, Michigan and West Virginia.
