ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Alabama starts its season with a new quarterback in the NFL stadium where Blake Sims and the Crimson Tide wanted to be last January.

The third-ranked Tide open Saturday night against No. 20 Wisconsin in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium. That is where Ohio State won the national championship game after first beating Alabama in a College Football Playoff semifinal last season.

There are three options to replace Sims, but Alabama's starter might not be known until the first snap of the game. And more than one quarterback could play.

Wisconsin, coming off its third 11-win season in five years, plays its first game under new head coach Paul Chryst. The Badgers' former offensive coordinator and Madison, Wisconsin, native returned after the past three seasons as Pittsburgh's head coach.
