ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Alabama will start its season with a new quarterback in the NFL stadium where Blake Sims and the Crimson Tide wanted to be last January.
The third-ranked Tide play their opener Saturday night against No. 20 Wisconsin in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium. That is where Ohio State won the national championship game after first beating SEC champ Alabama in a College Football Playoff semifinal at the Sugar Bowl.
Since three national titles in a four-season span, Alabama has now gone consecutive seasons without even winning a bowl game.
