The Alabama football team will face Wisconsin to open the 2015 season at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The "Cowboys Stadium Classic" is scheduled for September 5, 2015 with television network coverage and kickoff time to be determined at a later date. 

Under head coach Nick Saban, UA has played in four previous neutral site regular season games and has two more on the schedule over the next two years.

The Tide played Florida State in Jacksonville in 2007 as well as Clemson (2008) and Virginia Tech (2009) in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff in Atlanta.

UA opened the 2012 campaign with a 42-14 win over Michigan in Arlington.

Alabama will begin the 2013 season in Atlanta with a matchup against Virginia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff and again in 2014 against West Virginia.
