TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Alabama football team held its final practice of the 2015 spring season Thursday in shells for roughly two hours inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility.

Alabama’s 2015 Golden Flake A-Day Game will be played Saturday, April 18, at 2 p.m. (CDT) inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. The A-Day Game is once again free to the public and will be broadcast on SEC Network + with Joe Tessitore calling the action, Greg McElroy as the analyst and Shannon Spake reporting from the sidelines.

The game will have a similar format to years past, with the first-team offense and second-team defense being on one team, and the first-team defense and second-team offense on the other.

The format for Saturday’s game is much like a normal game, with a few minor variations primarily regarding the game clock. The game will consist of four 15-minute quarters with a running clock. The clock will be stopped only following scoring plays, penalties, and changes of possession. Regular clock rules will be used during the final four minutes of the second quarter and the fourth quarter.
