Alabama schedules series with Boston College

Alabama has scheduled a home-and-home series with Boston College for the 2031 and 2034 seasons.

The Crimson Tide will visit Chestnut Hill, Mass., on Sept. 13, 2031, and the Eagles will come to Tuscaloosa on Sept. 16, 2034.

“Our future schedules continue to fill out nicely with quality home-and-home series, many of which present us with opportunities to play opponents and go places we haven’t been to in a while or ever,” Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne said in a news release Wednesday. “The 2031 matchup in Chestnut Hill will be a great trip for our team and our fans, and we look forward to hosting the Eagles here in Tuscaloosa in 2034.”

The programs will meet for the first time since 1984. Boston College holds a 3-1 lead in the series. Alabama won the first meeting, 37-21, at the 1943 Orange Bowl.

Alabama announced Tuesday that it will travel to Oklahoma State in 2028 and host the Cowboys in 2029.

“The numerous home-and-home matchups that have been scheduled in recent years are going to make for some great football games for our program and our fan base,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said in the release. “We are excited to add a trip to Chestnut Hill for the 2031 season and look forward to the challenge that awaits us with the Boston College series.”
