What channel is Alabama vs. Notre Dame today? Time, television schedule for the college football playoff semifinals

The first college football playoff semifinal of the 2020 season will take place between two of the sport’s most storied programs, in their most treasured bowling game. Something like.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Notre Dame are scheduled to meet in the Rose Bowl, but “Everyone’s Grandpa” will not take place at Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California. The state of California has enacted strict attendance policies amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and even the Rose Bowl was not exempt. So, to prevent teams from traveling across the country to play a game no one can see, the game was moved to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Aside from the change of place, there are some interesting stories to watch. The Fighting Irish have a dominant 5-2 advantage in this series, beginning with wins in each of the first four meetings between these teams. The last time Alabama and Notre Dame met, however, it was in the 2013 BCS championship game – a 42-14 beating of Brian Kelly’s Irishman by Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide team.

Since that game, Alabama has been 7-4 in the postseason, winning four CFP semifinals and two national titles. The Irish are 4-2 in the postseason over the same span, but 0-2 in all 6 New Year’s Day bowls (including 0-1 in the Playoffs).

On paper, Notre Dame may have a hard time stopping Tide’s three-headed offensive monster: quarterback Mac Jones, wide receiver DeVonta Smith and running back Name Harris from doing so; all three finished in the top five of Heisman’s voting, with Jones and Smith gaining finalist status. To that end, I sought out Ian Book and Karen Williams to attack an Alabama defense that may have been a bit exposed in the SEC championship game against Florida.

Here’s everything you need to watch the 2021 Rose Bowl game between Alabama and Notre Dame, including the start time and TV channel for the college football playoff semifinal.
