— In addition to Alabama's game against Arkansas being homecoming on the Tuscaloosa campus, the Crimson Tide's 1992 national championship team will be honored at halftime.

This is the 25th anniversary of Alabama's 1992 national title.

Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney, a walk-on wide receiver on Alabama's 1992 team, will be among the former players returning for the ceremony according to multiple media reports.

Swinney, whose Tigers beat Alabama 35-31 in last season's College Football Playoff championships game, will be able to travel to the Alabama-Arkansas game because No. 2 Clemson plays at Syracuse on Friday.

Alabama's 1992 team went 13-0 — including a 38-11 victory over Arkansas in Little Rock in the Razorbacks' first SEC home game — and beat No. 1 Miami in the Sugar Bowl.
