CW Staff

The annual A-Day Game will be televised live to a national audience by ESPN on April 17. A-Day is the 15th and final practice of the spring with kickoff from Bryant-Denny Stadium scheduled for 2 p.m. Admission will once again be free to the public. The network has not yet determined on-air commentators for A-Day.

Over the last three years, Alabama has totaled 254,388 fans at A-Day. The University set a college football record in the spring of 2007 as a capacity crowd of 92,138 watched head coach Nick Saban’s first A-Day at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Last year’s attendance of 84,050 again led the SEC, and an average of 84,796 have been on hand for the last three A-Day scrimmages at Alabama.

Alabama starts spring practice on March 12, and will then take the next week off for spring break. The second practice is scheduled for Monday, March 22.
