A-Day Weekend Is More Than A Game

The A-Day Football Game is scheduled for 2 p.m. CDT Saturday, April 16. While that is the featured attraction, it is far from the only event of what has become a weekend of campus activity. (And that doesn't even include things like the band Sugarland playing at the Tuscaloosa Ampitheater April 15.)

Alabama Coach Nick Saban will put his 2011 team on public display at 2 p.m. CDT Saturday, April 16, in Bryant-Denny Stadium. But there will also be ceremonies for Saban and his 2009 Crimson Tide national championship team and for the 2010 captains.

There is also baseball, Thursday-Saturday, and Softball, Friday-Sunday and spring soccer and tennis on campus.
