Any Alabama football game is worth watching because they usually win. And when your team is winning, they’re a blast to watch. There are, however, a few games on this year’s schedule that fall under the “to die for” category; we’re talking about games that are so big that there will be students who will choose to skip school on that particular game day.
Cut Class (or Work) to Catch These 4 Alabama Football Games:
Oct. 26 vs. Tennessee
Here’s a game that could conflict with your Saturday class(es); consider it a lesson in history. Also known as the Third Saturday in October, the Alabama–Tennessee football rivalry dates back to the first game 1901 in Birmingham, which ended in a 6–6 tie. Fast forward to the last game played between the two rivals on October 20, 2012, a game that Alabama also won rather impressively (44-13). Alabama has won six straight meetings in this rivalry, and all signs point to the Tide earning a seventh consecutive victory over the Vols. So if you’re up for an almost sure win against a heated rival, why not see Alabama possibly drubbing them?
Nov. 9 vs. LSU
LSU has won five of the last six meetings in Tuscaloosa, and this showdown has all the makings of another epic slugfest.
This is certainly a quality game to cut class for since Alabama will be coming off a bye week… and you’ll be chomping at the bit to watch some Alabama football. Given what’s at stake (ending LSU’s 5-game winning streak against Alabama), the least you can do is scream “Roll Tide” at the top of your lungs to cheer your team on to victory.
Nov. 30 vs. Auburn
Also known as the Iron Bowl, this historical rivalry between the two largest public universities in the state of Alabama (the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn University Tigers) dates back to their first game played on February 22, 1893 (Auburn 32, Alabama 22). Alabama leads the series 42–34–1. Last year, Alabama blew Auburn away by keeping them off the scoreboard to the tune of 49-0; and they won the year before, too. A three-peat whipping would be sweet.
Dec. 7 SEC Championship Game (Georgia Dome, Atlanta)
Of course, assuming that Alabama goes to the SEC Championship Game, are you sure you’re going to miss their crowning moment?
It’s simple to say that championship games are always can’t miss games to watch and to be a part of. With Alabama going for a historic three-peat, this year’s SEC Championship Game would be extremely difficult to miss. Find any excuse in the book to make it out to this one; you’ll be hearing about the big win for days to come.
