Oregon at Alabama
6:00 p.m. PT - Legacy Arena - Birmingham, Al.

The Ducks are back on the road as they head across the country to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide. The meeting has of course been long awaited on the football field but the Ducks finally get the Crimson Tide on the hardwood. Under new head coach Avery Johnson, Alabama is riding a five game winning streak thanks to their strong defensive play. Alabama opened the season with a strong schedule, having already played three teams ranked in the top-25. Alabama has wins over at the time #20 ranked Wichita State and #17 Notre Dame. Look for Dwayne Benjamin to come out strong for the Ducks as the Louisiana native will have a majority of his family and friends in attendance with the game being so close to home.
