CMU Adds Alabama to 2023 Schedule

MT. PLEASANT — Central Michigan football announced on Wednesday that it has added defending national champion Alabama to its 2023 schedule.

The game will be played on Sept. 2, 2023 at Alabama. The Crimson Tide has won a national title in five of the last nine seasons.

“We have won two games in the past three years against Power Five teams,” CMU Athletic Director Michael Alford said in a statement. “Our goal is to win Mid-American Conference football championships and give our student-athletes the opportunity to prove themselves anywhere. We play four Big Ten teams in the next three seasons. We play Kansas this season. We face Miami from the ACC in 2019. And now we have LSU in 2021.”
