ESPN experts predict Alabama’s 2019 Bowl Game – Roll Tide Wire

The Alabama Crimson Tide football team may have suffered a heart-breaking loss in the 2019 Iron Bowl against Auburn that took them out of the running to participate in the College Football Playoff, but that doesn’t mean their season is done.

Nick Saban’s 10-2 team has been bowl eligible since beating Texas A&M in their Week 6 matchup at Kyle Field.

Well, since the Crimson Tide have one game left to play, it’s time to start guessing which bowl game they will be playing in and who they will be playing against.

ESPN college football experts Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach weighed in.

Schlabach predicts Alabama will be making the trip to Dallas, Texas to face off against the Memphis Tigers of the American Athletic Conference in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.

The 11-1 Tigers could potentially be the 2019 AAC Champions.

It is also worth noting that since 2016, Alabama has only lost to schools whose mascots are Tigers (Auburn, Clemson and LSU)

Bonagura has the Crimson Tide playing the Virgina Cavaliers in the 2019 Capital One Orange Bowl.

This would be Alabama’s second consecutive year in the Orange Bowl after they defeated the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2019 College Football Playoff Semi-final game to advance to the National Championship.

We are roughly two weeks away from knowing where Alabama will play their bowl game, and under three weeks away from the first bowl game being played on Dec. 20 when the Makers Wanted Bahama Bowl and the Frsco Bowl kick off.
