Schedule News - Alabama will host Charleston Southern
Charleston Southern have released their 2016-17 non-conference schedule. For the third time in five seasons, the Buccaneers will travel to Tuscaloosa. The game will take place on Tuesday, November 29th (Time TBD). The 15-16 campaign for Charleston Southern was rather dismal, as they finished 9-21 (5-13 in Big South play). This isn't the type of strong RPI game (Charleston Southern's final RPI rank was 297) the SEC front office is looking for their league teams to schedule so the hope is 1] Alabama wins the game (always important) and 2] Charleston Southern is an improved team and finishes the 16-17 season with at least a top 200 RPI.
