Crimson Tide Continues Work for Saturday’s Game Against Georgia Southern
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Alabama football team continued preparations for this week’s game with a two-hour practice session at the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility, on Tuesday. The Crimson Tide (9-1, 6-1 SEC) and Eagles (9-1, 7-1 SoCon) will meet on Saturday, November 19, at 1 p.m. CT, in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“Our approach every week never changes,” sophomore running back Eddie Lacy said. “We go out to play to win. Every team is going to get our best effort.”
Alabama will be in search of its 10th win of the 2011 campaign on Saturday against Georgia Southern. The Tide has won at least 10 games in each of the past three seasons and will be looking to make it four in a row, versus the Eagles. Alabama will be looking for its 32nd 10-win season in 117 seasons of football. Alabama currently has 31 10-win seasons, ranking second in college football behind Oklahoma, which has reached the 10-win plateau 32 times.
Saturday’s game will be televised on a pay-per-view basis by the Crimson Tide Sports Network. Chris Stewart will call the action with former Alabama quarterback Tyler Watts as the color analyst and Tom Roberts reporting from the sideline.
