Alabama continued to fill out its future non-conference football schedule Wednesday, announcing a home-and-home series with Boston College that will begin in 2031.

The Tide will make a rare trip to the Northeast on Sept. 13, 2031 to play BC in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The Eagles will then travel to Tuscaloosa for a game Sept. 16, 2034.

“Our future schedules continue to fill out nicely with quality home-and-home series, many of which present us with opportunities to play opponents and go places we haven’t been to in a while or ever,” Alabama athletics director Greg Byrne said in a statement. “The 2031 matchup in Chestnut Hill will be a great trip for our team and our fans, and we look forward to hosting the Eagles here in Tuscaloosa in 2034.”

BC owns a 3-1 all-time record over Alabama, with the two schools last meeting for a home-and-home series in 1983 and 1984. Led by Doug Flutie, the Eagles won both games — first in Foxboro, Massachusetts and then in Birmingham’s Legion Field. Alabama won the 1943 Orange Bowl over BC but lost in a trip to Boston three years later.

“The numerous home-and-home matchups that have been scheduled in recent years are going to make for some great football games for our program and our fan base,” Nick Saban said in a statement. “We are excited to add a trip to Chestnut Hill for the 2031 season and look forward to the challenge that awaits us with the Boston College series.”

Alabama also announced a future series with Oklahoma State on Tuesday as it transitions from neutral site games against major non-conference opponents to home-and-home series beginning in the 2022 season.
