It's About Time

The University of Alabama football team will open its 2006 season with a trio of televised games at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

In a press release issued by The University on Thursday, Director of Athletics Mal Moore announced Thursday that Alabama's games against Hawaii (September 2) and Louisiana-Monroe (Sept. 16) will be produced by the Crimson Tide Sports Network for pay-per-view distribution with both contests slated to begin at 6:07 p.m. central time.

The Vanderbilt game, scheduled for Sept. 9, will kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT and will be televised by Fox Sports South, the Crimson Tide's first appearance ever on that network.

The pay-per-view telecasts will be anchored by the network's David Crane, who will be joined in the booth by former Tide quarterback Tyler Watts and Crimson Tide Sports Network's Chris Stewart.

Fans will be able to order the Crimson Tide Pay-Per-View telecasts through their local cable company. CTSN will make both games available to DirecTV and the Dish Network. Outside of Alabama, the games will be available on ESPN Game Plan.
