Alabama football will be celebrating two homecomings. The first is the traditional and stated one, happening October 5th when the Tide hosts Georgia State. The other is happening two weeks earlier.
September 21st is when former Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain returns to Tuscaloosa. He's now the Colorado State head coach and his Rams will try to be the first non-SEC team to beat Alabama at Bryant-Denny Stadium since 2007.
"I'm really excited about that game for not only our players but for our whole university just to go be able to look at what the top is, what it's about and what it takes and so I'm excited about that but right now I'm not one of those guys who really looks at our schedule, I look at what we did today to get ready for that schedule and to get prepared for that so that's the mentality that I have and that's what the Rams understand," said Jim McElwain, Colorado State head coach.
