The Crimson Tide will be playing its second-ever full-contact game in 2017, and it will be the first time the program has played in a game at home.

Alabama will be hosting a home game against Auburn, the nation’s No. 2 team, in the 2018 BCS Championship Game.

The Crimson Tide and Auburn are expected to meet on Sunday, Jan. 11, the first day of the 2018 season.

Alabama will then face No. 1 Florida State in a rematch of the Rose Bowl.

In 2018, Alabama won three of four games at Auburn.
