TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
The top-ranked Alabama football team spent two hours at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields Tuesday afternoon working on its game plan for this week's matchup against Chattanooga. The Crimson Tide and Mocs will square off for the 12th time in the series on Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium at 1:05 p.m. CT.
Earlier in the day, senior punter Cody Mandell was one of 10 student-athletes recognized as semifinalists for the Burlsworth Trophy. The Burlsworth Trophy, presented by the Springdale (Ark.) Rotary Club, is given to the most outstanding collegiate football player who began his career as a walk-on. The trophy is named in honor of Brandon Burlsworth, who walked on to the Arkansas Razorbacks in 1994, worked his way to being a three-year starter and was eventually named an All-American in 1998.
