With an opportunity like this, you don’t need a challenge. The way Alabama Football Coach Nick Saban looks at it, his Crimson Tide football team has an opportunity ahead. That opportunity comes against the nation’s number one team.
Watch clips from The Crimson Tide Players’ Monday press conference. The press conference featured Marquis Maze, Robert Lester, Dont’a Hightower, Barrett Jones, Josh Chapman, and Trent Richardson. The No. 2 ranked Crimson Tide will face the No. 1 LSU Tigers this Saturday.

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – An injury knocked Trent Richardson out of Alabama’s 24-21 loss last season. The Crimson Tide’s star running back hasn’t forgotten. “I tore an abdominal muscle and I had a slightly torn MCL,” he said Monday at second-ranked Alabama continued preparation for Saturday’s showdown against top-ranked LSU.
Here is a photo gallery of some former Bama LSU games. We will put up more photos later in the week. Hope enjoy this little bit of history.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – After a three-day break at the end of its bye week, second-ranked Alabama (8-0, 5-0 in the Southeastern Conference) has returned to practice today to resume preparation for a 7 p.m. CDT home game Saturday against to-ranked LSU (8-0, 5-0). As is typical for a Monday practice, the Crimson Tide is not in full pads.
The second-ranked football team returned to the field on Monday with a two-hour practice in shells at the Thompson-Drew Practice Fields as it began preparations for Saturday’s game against No. 1 LSU. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. CT in Bryant-Denny Stadium with game airing on CBS.
This is probably not a great week to ask Alabama Coach Nick Saban about his players being in the running for individual awards, but it wouldn’t come as a great surprise if Saban brought it up. The Crimson Tide coach seems to relish players in the team sport of football being recognized for their individual excellence.
TUSCALOOSA – OK, so the wait isn’t quite over. But with bye weeks for both the University of Alabama and LSU now squarely in the rear-view mirror, the most anticipated game in college football this season is in full focus for both UA coach Nick Saban and Tigers coach Les Miles. Both coaches spent the bye week focusing less on each other, and more on team improvement. “We’re certainly happy to get back into a regular work routine,” said Saban. Said wide receiver Marquis Maze: “I’m glad (this week) is here; get back to football. A break was fine for the body, but it’s time to get back to business.” How big is this game?
Nick Saban spoke with reporters Monday to preview No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama. The top-ranked Tigers (8-0, 5-0) and the second-ranked Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0) are coming off open dates entering Saturday’s 7 p.m. game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
This week will mark the final week of the fall practice schedule for the Alabama baseball team. During the final days of fall workouts, the Crimson Tide will hold two team practices on Monday and Tuesday, followed by three intrasquad games on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Imagine watching two freight trains tear toward each other on a single track, collision imminent. Now imagine watching that for nine weeks and you’ll have an idea of how college football fans, and especially those of the University of Alabama and LSU, have felt for the entire 2011 season. The game is being called a semifinal to the Bowl Championship Series title game, a designation recently reserved for the Southeastern Conference Championship Game in early December. And it’s a game of unprecedented importance even though both unbeaten teams will still have three regular season games left to play after Saturday’s matchup.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Two of the 15 semifinals for the 2011 Jim Thorpe Award are members of Alabama’s top-ranked defense. Senior safety Mark Barron and junior cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick still are in the running for the award, which goes annually to the nation’s top defensive back.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Mike, who would not give his last name, sat in front of Coleman Coliseum offering to buy tickets. After about an hour he had yet to purchase any from the steady flow of students entering to pick up their tickets for the 7 p.m. game Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Alabama will visit Mississippi State on Nov. 12, but the game time and televisions coverage won’t be determined until after this weekend’s games. CBS has a doubleheader that weekend. One game will start at 11 a.m. CST The other will kick off in the usual 2:30 p.m. CST slot.
