Alabama looking for schedule relief

Alabama faces Auburn today on the heels of the Tigers having a week off.

Unless there are some adjustments made next season, it's something the Crimson Tide had better get used to.

Alabama athletic director Mal Moore has asked the SEC to make some adjustments to the schedule next season. Alabama is slated to face six teams in 2010 that will be coming off bye weeks.

According to a study done by The Tuscaloosa News, Alabama will have faced 16 opponents coming off a bye week over a four-year period at the end of the 2010 season. The next closest in the SEC would be LSU, who will have faced five teams coming off a bye week during that same span at the end of next season.

Auburn is the third opponent coming off a bye week that Alabama has faced this season. The other two were Mississippi State and Tennessee.
