Alabama, Arizona schedule future home-and-home series for 2032 and 2033

Alabama and Arizona will play a home-and-home series in 2032-33, the schools announced on Thursday. The first game will take place in Tuscaloosa on Sept. 4, 2032, and Tucson on Sept. 3, 2033. 

"We are excited to announce another home-and-home for our future football schedules with the addition of Arizona for the 2032 and 2033 seasons," Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne said. "These meetings will be the first between the Crimson Tide and Wildcats, providing our teams and our fan bases exciting new opportunities during the regular season. As I said early on, we are going to work hard at adding more home-and-homes to our non-conference schedules, and we are pleased that we've been able to do that, securing nine of them thus far that will begin in 2022 with Texas."

Arizona has played only seven games against SEC teams during the program's history. The Wildcats also have a home-and-home scheduled with Mississippi State starting in 2022.

"We are very excited to announce this home-and-home series with Alabama," Arizona athletic director Dave Heeke said. "Facing a marquee opponent like the Crimson Tide is not only important to our football program, but bringing a high-profile opponent to Arizona Stadium will make a tremendous impact on our community.  We look forward to welcoming the Alabama football program to Tucson, as well as an exciting trip to Tuscaloosa."

Alabama also has a home-and-home series with Oklahoma in 2032 and 2033, and has at least one Power 5 nonconference opponent on the books through the 2035 season. Arizona has a Power Five opponent (or BYU) scheduled through 2033.
