Wisconsin in Dallas. Big name but I was hoping for OSU or OK.

Tidesports - Alabama's 2015 opponent at Cowboys Stadium to be Wisconsin
bummer.....who cares about Wisky?
was hoping for Oklahoma, USC, Ohio St from my end
I seriously doubt urban would ever agree to play saban again.... He might start living his family again!
Only way Urban M. will play Saban again is if they make him in the N.C.G.
Tired of hearing the "Bama is scared to play Wisconsin" BS after the last deal fell through
Curb stomping USC would be great.
These games have about a 0% chance of taking place going forward. It doesn't really make sense for either party. With playoff spots being up for grabs. It's gonna be all about getting as many W's as possible. We should count our blessings we at least get a 'name" team to play imho.

Mich st 2016 & 2017
Yep...these are "safe" name teams for us to play. Don't expect us to be playing the OSU's & Okllahoma's of the world going forward. We also got home & home with Sparty coming up.
I thinks it's just the opposite. the committee Will look at strength of schedule a lot more so teams will schedule bigger games and less cupcakes.
And to those who say strength of schedule, that's a joke. We are never going to have that issue. We schedule the right way. Safe, big name teams with the tough conference schedule.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
Not likely my friend.
Saban likes the big name opponents. I don't ever see Saban going for a "safe" opponent. I wanted UCLA to even the score from our 2 losses under Dubose & Fran.
These games are exactly safe. We have very little danger to lose to a VT, Wisky, WVU. U aren't gonna see us going after bigger names like Ohio St. Texas, USC, etc. Maybe UCLA but they would be not much of a risk right now either.
ESPN showed the next Wisconsin HC a little bit ago on the sidelines of the Rose Bowl. It took Muffburger about 3 seconds to mention how good of a coach he was and that he beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl a few years ago as the Utah St coach. I guess this will be the game where CNS can settle the score so to speak.
