TUSCALOOSA, Ala. --  The Alabama football team worked for 90 minutes Thursday afternoon as preparation Saturday's Southeastern Conference road game at Vanderbilt begin to wind down.

The Crimson Tide will hold a brief walk through on Friday morning at the Alabama Football Complex before flying to Nashville in the early afternoon.  The team is scheduled to arrive at Vanderbilt Stadium at 2:30 p.m. and will walk around the stadium before heading to the team hotel.

"It was another good day today," Alabama head coach Dennis Franchione said. "We had three good days of work this week.  I hope our play on Saturday reflects that and I think it will.  I am very pleased with our three days of work this week."

Alabama and Vanderbilt will kickoff at 1:07 p.m. (CST) this Saturday from Vanderbilt Stadium.  The game is available on a pay-per-view basis. Persons wishing to watch the game should call their local cable provider.
