The Crimson Tide have reportedly filled their fourth and final non-conference slot for the 2024 season.

According to the Tuscaloosa News, Alabama "is scheduled to face Mercer on Nov. 16, 2024 in Tuscaloosa, per the contract signed in February 2019."

Mercer is an FCS school that went 7-3 under Drew Cronic last year.

Bama's other non-conference games include Western Kentucky (Aug. 31), South Florida (Sept. 7) and Wisconsin (Sept. 14).

However, this is subject to change if the SEC decides alter its in-conference game requirement from eight to nine (or even 10) prior to that season. Should that be the case, the Tide will be forced to remove one or more of those games.
