Bama continues to prep for Ole Miss on Saturday


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama football team practiced for two hours in full pads on Tuesday afternoon at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields.

The Crimson Tide continued to work on its game plan to counter the Ole Miss offense, one of the Southeastern Conference’s top-ranked units. Alabama will travel to Oxford this Saturday to take on the Rebels at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson will have the call in the booth with Allie LaForce on the sidelines.

Practice will resume on Wednesday and wrap up on Thursday before the Crimson Tide travels Friday for its first true road test of the 2016 season. Alabama owns the all-time advantage over Ole Miss, 47-11-2 (51-10-2 actual), in a series that dates back to 1894. Head coach Nick Saban is 8-1 in road conference openers during his time with the Crimson Tide and has outscored his opponents, 332-163 (36.8-18.1 ppg) in his first nine seasons at Alabama.
