USC vs. Alabama ... at Cowboys Stadium?

But right now, it's only a rumor, which began on Wednesday during 'The Dan Patrick Show.'

The idea of the Trojans opening the 2016 season against the always talented Crimson Tide (and some guy named Lane Kiffin who, at least for now, is the Alabama offensive coordinator) is one that will certainly excite all of college football.

The schools claim a combined 26 national championships since 1869.
