TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The football team practiced for about two hours Monday afternoon in full pads inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility as the Crimson Tide got its game-week preparations underway.

Head coach Nick Saban and selected players met with the media prior to Monday's practice at a Noon press conference in the Naylor Stone Media Room to address the season opener against West Virginia.
