2014 Iron Bowl Set for a Primetime Kickoff
For the first time in seven years, the Iron Bowl will play under the lights in primetime on national television.
The Southeastern Conference announced kickoff times for the final weekend of the regular season and Alabama will host its in-state rival at 6:45PM CT on ESPN.
CBS, which broadcasts the SEC game of the week in the afternoon time slot, was unable to select Alabama again because the network had already aired five previous Crimson Tide games this season. Under contract rules, that's the maximum a team can be shown in a single year.
This also marks the first time that the two teams will square off at night in Tuscaloosa. Alabama has won the previous three meetings in Bryant-Denny Stadium by a combined score of 112-28.
