Alabama will host Central Michigan for a nonconference football game in 2023, the school announced on Wednesday.

The Crimson Tide and Chippewas will face off in Bryant-Denny Stadium in the season opener on Sept. 2. Alabama and Central Michigan have never played each other in football.

Alabama had previously announced a home game against Texas on Sept. 9 of that season, followed by another home game against Western Kentucky on Sept. 16.
