"CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli compiled a list of games Alabama has had to play at 11 a.m. local time since the SEC Network was launched in 2014. The opponents: Florida Atlantic, Kent State, Mississippi State, Mercer, Louisiana, Arkansas, The Citadel and now Southern Miss. They’ve also played Arkansas State, Fresno State, Colorado State, Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, Louisiana-Monroe at home in September over that span. Apart from the two SEC opponents, that isn’t exactly a list of teams that are going to get ESPN’s or CBS’s scheduling department all worked up. And considering Alabama received $46.1 million from its media-rights deals in 2018, $22.6 million of it directly attributed to football, the networks probably are going to schedule the Crimson Tide’s cupcake games whenever they please." And how about those non-con road trips? I'm pretty sure that since 2007, y'all have played exactly TWO. So far this season, the 4 highest rated games have all involved the SEC playing non-con opponents and none of those SEC teams were named Alabama.
