The Crimson Tide will use the week off to focus on fundamentals and correcting mistakes
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama football team returned to the field Tuesday afternoon for a two-hour session in shells at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields, completing the first of three workouts during the bye week. The practice focused on fundamental execution and cleaning up mistakes from the Texas A&M game.
After a 33-14 win over then-No. 6 Texas A&M last Saturday, the Crimson Tide will enjoy its first bye weekend of the season. Following the break from play, Alabama will begin preparations for a top-20 showdown with No. 19 LSU. The Crimson Tide and Tigers will meet on Nov. 5 for a 7 p.m. CT kickoff at Tiger Stadium. The game will air live on CBS with the trio of Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson and Allie LaForce working the broadcast for the third straight weekend.
Alabama is 50-25-5 all-time against LSU, including a 27-9-2 mark in Baton Rouge. The Tide has won five consecutive meetings between the two squads dating back to the 2011 BCS National Championship Game. Most recently, Alabama came away with a 30-16 victory in Tuscaloosa in 2015.
