Crimson Tide worked again on Thursday in preparation for the annual Golden Flake A-Day Game on April 22

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama football team worked in wet conditions for two hours in full pads on Thursday afternoon on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields. The two-hour session was the Crimson Tide’s fifth of 15 scheduled spring practices.

The Tide are preparing for the 2017 Golden Flake A-Day Spring Football Game, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 22, at 2 p.m. CT at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The A-Day Game will be televised live on ESPN for the second year in a row and is free to the public.  Joe Tessitore, Joey Galloway and Kirk Herbstreit are going to call the action with Laura Rutledge providing additional insight from the sidelines.

In the interest of enhancing existing security measures at games, a clear bag policy will be in effect for the A-Day Game. Fans are encouraged not to bring any types of bags inside SEC stadiums during football games; however, the following outlines bags that are permitted:

Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12″;

One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar); and

Small clutch bags, with or without a handle or strap that do not exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″ (approximately the size of a hand).

An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

An approved logo no larger than 4.5″ x 3.4″ may be displayed on one side of a permissible clear bag. 

Fans will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the stadium in a permissible clear bag, such as binoculars and cameras. For more information on the clear bag policy, fans can read the full release here.
