TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The No. 1 Alabama football team moved back outdoors, practicing for two hours in full pads on Wednesday at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields. The Crimson Tide continued preparations for its upcoming matchup on Saturday with No. 21 Ole Miss. The game will kick off at 5:30 p.m. CT in Bryant-Denny Stadium and will air live on ESPN.
