Report: Old Dominion football won't play Alabama in 2015

Posted: Updated:

Old Dominion has reportedly decided to pass on Alabama's offer to play a game in 2015.

According to a story in the Virginian-Pilot, ODU was offered $1.3 million to play a non-conference game at Bryant Denny Stadium.

Monarchs athletic director Wood Selig told the newspaper that there was no way to make room for the Crimson Tide on the 2015 schedule.

"We've already got 12 games," Selig told the Virginian-Pilot. "I'd certainly touch base with (coach) Bobby Wilder on this, but I don't think playing a game against Alabama would be an advisable move given the infancy of our program."

Old Dominion is going into it's second season as an FBS program. ODU will join Conference USA this fall.

Alabama is currently scheduled to play non-conference games against Wisconsin and Louisiana-Monroe in 2015.
