Countdown to Kickoff
Alabama Holds Final Practice Before Georgia State



Nov. 16, 2010

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama football team practiced for two hours in shells (shorts, shoulder pads and helmets) Tuesday afternoon at the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility. It was the Crimson Tide's final practice in preparation for Thursday night's game against Georgia State.

The Crimson Tide will face a Georgia State team that has put together an impressive 6-4 mark in their first year under head coach Bill Curry.

"We know that every game we play is important," sophomore defensive back Robert Lester said. "Every player in college is an athlete and can make plays. We can't look ahead to Auburn and look past Georgia State, because they could sneak up and beat us."

The Tide will hold a walkthrough Wednesday afternoon. Alabama and Georgia State are slated for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff on Thursday. The game will be nationally televised by ESPNU with Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and Erin Andrews on the call from Bryant-Denny Stadium.
