TUSCALOOSA, AL (WSFA) -

The University of Alabama football team will open the 2016 season in the Cowboys Classic against Southern California at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The game is scheduled for Saturday, September 3.

Television coverage, kickoff time and ticket sales have not yet been determined.

The eighth annual Cowboys Classic will be the eighth meeting between the two programs and the first regular season match-up since the 1970s when they split four epic battles during the 1970, 1971, 1977 and 1978 seasons. This came at a time in college football history when both universities were fighting for the national title on an annual basis, including a shared title in 1978 – when the only loss on Alabama's 11-1 record was a 24-14 defeat at the hands of a Trojans team that posted a 12-1 record and won the Rose Bowl.

The two schools also squared off in the 1985 Aloha Bowl, with the Crimson Tide winning that contest 24-3. Alabama leads the all-time series 5-2.
