Schedule Of A-Day Activities Saturday
The annual Alabama A-Day football game will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium. As is tradition, there is no admission charge for the annual spring game.
It is expected that Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban will stick with the formula of pitting the first offense and second defense on one team against the first defense and second offense on the other side. There will also be special rules in effect (i.e., no tackling the quarterback) and the kicking game is likely to include no live returns.
Gates open at 11 a.m.
Perhaps the most notable tradition of A-Day weekend is the Walk of Fame ceremony in which the previous year's captains place their handprints and footprints in concrete. Previous captains are honored in the area around Denny Chimes on the quad. Last year's captains are C.J. Mosley, A.J. McCarron, Kevin Norwood. The ceremony will begin at 11:20 a.m.
Fan Fest; autograph session with former Alabama players Andrew Zow, Antonio Langham, and Chris Rogers; and autograph session with former Tide Coach Gene Stallings and former Bama quarterback Jay Barker all will begin at 9 a.m. outside the North End Zone.
There will not be an Elephant Stomp or a Walk of Champions.
The core campus roadblocks will be set by 10 a.m.
It is expected to be mostly sunny, low 70s at the start, falling to mid 60s.
Following the game, Coach Saban will present the various spring awards to Tide players.
