Seven weeks after its season began, the University of Alabama football team will play under the lights.
The SEC released on Monday morning the kickoff times for the games of Oct. 19, and UA will host Tennessee at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
Each of the last four meetings between Tennessee and Alabama have been at 2:30, the most recent night game being in Knoxville. The last night game between the two in Tuscaloosa was in 2011.
By the time the game comes, UA will have played five afternoon games and one morning game. Heat has followed the Crimson Tide: three of the four outdoor games to date have been played in 88 degrees or warmer.
