TUSCALOOSA, Ala.- The University of Alabama football team practiced for just under two hours in helmets and shoulder pads on Tuesday as they continued to work on their gameplan for the upcoming PetroSun Independence Bowl game against Oklahoma State University.
"It kind of feels like spring practice a little bit," said interim head coach Joe Kines. "When you compete against each other one day one group gets the upper-hand and the next day the other group comes back and they get the upper-hand. That shows you the competition is good and the guys are really biting in to what needs to be done."
The team will not practice tomorrow but will use the time to watch film and go through conditioning with running and lifting weights. They will be back out on the field Thursday in full pads, the last time they will practice in full pads before leaving Tuscaloosa.
The Crimson Tide has two more practices remaining before they are scheduled to report in Shreveport, La. on Sunday. They will practice Thursday and Friday, will have Saturday off. The Independence Bowl will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. (CT) on December 28.
