TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama football team held a 90-minute practice in shells Wednesday afternoon inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility to finalize preparations for Friday’s annual Iron Bowl against Auburn at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Sticking to a normal game-week routine, the Crimson Tide worked on special teams and continued to fine tune the game plan for the No. 2 Tigers. In what figures to be a close, hard-fought contest, special teams figure to weigh heavily on the outcome of the game.

“They’re a very capable team,” head coach Nick Saban said of the Tigers. “They’re very good on special teams, so this is a good all-around football team that we’re playing. We’re going to have to play our best game to have an opportunity to be successful.”

Following a Thanksgiving dinner at 1 p.m. Thursday, the Crimson Tide will hold a brief walkthrough to wrap up work on the Tigers. Friday’s kickoff is set for 1:40 p.m. (CST) and will be nationally televised by CBS.
