TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama football team practiced for the last time in the 2012 calendar year. The Crimson Tide continued to implement the game plan for Notre Dame in a two hour practice in shells in the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility, Saturday afternoon.
"We finished up our second block of practice today and I am very pleased with how our players have responded throughout this preparation we have had," Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. "We have had a lot of good practices and a lot of players improving and getting back to where we want them to be."
The team will have Sunday and Monday off before returning to preparations on Tuesday, Jan. 1. Alabama will also practice on the morning of Jan. 2, before departing for Miami that afternoon. The 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game will be played at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., at 7:30 p.m. (CST) and broadcast on ESPN.
