College football may already have its marquee non-conference game of the 2016 season. USC athletics announced on its Twitter account that the Trojans will take on Alabama at the Cowboys Classic in Arlington Stadium in Arlington, Texas, marking the first time that the two teams will play since 1985. The news was then confirmed by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy and Alabama football’s Twitter account. OFFICIAL: USC will take on Alabama on September 3, 2016 as part of the Cowboys Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. #FightOn #GameOn — USC Trojans (@USC_Athletics) July 16, 2014 USC & Alabama will play Sept. 3, 2016 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas — Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) July 16, 2014 @AlabamaFTBL and @USC_Athletics will open the 2016 season at the Cowboys Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. #RollTide — Alabama Football (@AlabamaFTBL) July 16, 2014 Any time two of college football’s powerhouse programs meet up on the gridiron, we approve. While USC has never played in the Cowboys Classic, Alabama holds a 1-0 record, having beaten Michigan 41-14 in 2012.
