Season opener: Alabama vs TCU possibility

The season opener is great to foresee, especially when it’s been hard to see it happen. As of now, the NCAA will be going forward with the season. There are some exceptions for the states that are still at the peak of the Covid19 pandemic. Schools in California and New York could always be on home restrictions. There have been thoughts of changing the season opener in case California can’t participate at the start of the season.

Season opener could change due to Covid19

On September 5th USC is scheduled to host Alabama. At the same time, TCU is scheduled to host California. With a possible stay at home restriction still in effect in California, these to games would be canceled.

Alabama Athletic Director Greg Byrne has considered the thought of playing TCU in AT&T Stadium. He has made it clear that Nick Saban’s football team is going to look forward to playing USC, but a backup plan might need to be in place for both Alabama and TCU should they have to cancel the original games.

Opportunity knocks

TCU would love to showcase their season with a top-five team right off the bat. They get to showcase arguably the best five star running back in the country Zachary Evans. This matchup would show the nation how robust the program is on a primetime scale.

Season opener features Zachary Evans.
Zachary Evans is the TCU Horned Frogs new five star running back which could be showcased in the opener on September 5, 2020.

The TCU Horned Frogs have a series edge on Alabama 3-2. Granted, the last time these two teams played was back in 1976. Alabama has won two games in a row, and the winner always wins big in this series. Neither coach was coaching last time these two teams played, so it would be interesting to see what would happen in this matchup now.
