Michigan, Alabama Set Date for JerryWorld



    The Alabama Crimson Tide will face the Michigan Wolverines at JerryWorld in 2012, according to a report by ESPN's Chris Low.

    Low reports that Alabama head coach Nick Saban revealed the upcoming neutral-site game on his radio show Thursday night.

    Saban added that Bama would also play games in Atlanta in 2013 and 2014 against opponents from the ACC conference.

    The Crimson Tide, under Saban, are no stranger to neutral-site games having played one in each of his first three seasons.

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made it no secret that he wants a lot of collegiate games played inside Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.  Texas A&M and Arkansas play in the Southwest Classic on Oct. 9 and earlier this season TCU defeated Oregon State 30-21 on Sept. 4.

    The stadium is also currently the home of the Cotton Bowl and the Big 12 Championship.
