Alabama clashing with USC is expected to be one of the nonconference highlights of the 2020 campaign.  The coronavirus pandemic, though, may change that.

Alabama is scheduled to square off with USC on Sept. 5 at AT&T Stadium Arlington.  It would serve as the season opener for both.

However, the state of Alabama is much further along than the state of California when it comes to loosening the stay-at-home restrictions.  Which could very well hamper the football programs in the Golden State in preparing for the upcoming season.
