The University of Alabama football’s game against the South Carolina Gamecocks at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 14 is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. CT kickoff on CBS, the network announced on Wednesday morning.


The Crimson Tide and Gamecocks will meet for the 15th time overall, with Alabama owning a 10-4 edge in the series. The two teams last met in 2010 with the then-No. 19 Gamecocks knocking off the top-ranked Crimson Tide in Columbia by a score of 35-21.


The game between Alabama and South Carolina marks the first of 16 “SEC on CBS” games during the 2019 year, with doubleheader dates set for Sept. 21 and Nov. 16. Matchups will be announced at a later date.

CBS also announced that it would air its day-night doubleheader on September 21, making it likely that the Alabama-LSU game, which has kicked off at night in every season since 2010, would be an afternoon game in Tuscaloosa should CBS select that game for its November 9 broadcast.
