Countdown to Kickoff
Football Returns to Practice on Tuesday



Oct. 1, 2013

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Following a two-day break from practice, the top-ranked Crimson Tide got back to work on Tuesday afternoon, working for two hours at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields. Alabama (4-0) will host Georgia State (0-4) at 11:21 a.m. CT on Saturday for Homecoming.

Saturday's game marks the second meeting between the Tide and Panthers. Alabama won the only other meeting between the two teams with a 63-7 triumph in 2010, Georgia State's first season playing football. The Panthers are under the direction of first-year head coach Trent Miles, who took the reins of the program after five seasons as the head coach at his alma mater, Indiana State.

Tickets are still available for the game and can be purchased online at or by calling the Alabama Ticket Office at 205-348-BAMA (2262), or toll free at 1-877-TIDETIX. The Athletic Ticket Office in Coleman Coliseum is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended phone hours are through 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
