ALABAMA SET TO FACE MICHIGAN IN CITRUS BOWL

The Alabama Crimson Tide will face off with No. 14 Michigan in the Citrus Bowl at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 1.

It is the fifth all-time meeting between the two schools since 1988, with the series tied 2-2. The most recent came at the 2012 Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas.

Alabama is making its third Citrus Bowl appearance, holding a 2-0 record. The Crimson Tide defeated Ohio State, 24-17, in the 1995 Citrus Bowl. Again, Alabama appeared in the then-Capital One Bowl in Orlando, capturing a 49-7 win over No. 7 Michigan State following the 2010 season.

Head coach Nick Saban is 11-5 in the postseason at Alabama, including wins in the College Football Playoff over Oklahoma, Georgia, Clemson and Washington.
