The Alabama Crimson Tide have added a game against Western Carolina to their 2014 football schedule, according to documents obtained by The Tuscaloosa News.
Alabama will host Western Carolina at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Nov. 22, 2014. The contest is part of a two-game contract which also has the Catamounts visiting Tuscaloosa this season (Nov. 17).
The Crimson Tide is 1-0 against the Catamounts after a 52-0 beating in 2004. Due to NCAA sanctions levied against the program, Alabama had to vacate a 2007 win against WCU.
Florida Atlantic, who visits Alabama this season on Sept. 22, also signed a two-game deal with the Tide and will return for a visit on Sept. 6, 2014. This game was already publicly known, although the exact date wasn’t confirmed until now.
Alabama will open the 2014 season against West Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Aug. 30 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. It will be Bama’s second straight and fourth overall appearance in the game, as they are also scheduled to meet Virginia Tech in 2013.
In their two previous Chick-fil-A games, the Crimson Tide beat Clemson 34-10 in 2008 and Virginia Tech 34-24 in 2009.
