The University of Alabama football team held its final full practice on Saturday afternoon, working a 90-minute practice in helmets and shorts...shorts, something no one has seen in Tuscaloosa since Christmas.

 Alabama’s Saturday began at Phillips Arena for the College Football Playoff Media Day that featured the entire team being asked way too many questions.  Following the hour-long interview session, the players got to catch their breaths and return to the team hotel for lunch and meetings prior to departing for practice.  Let's just say it's a busy schedule, and that seems to be a concern for coaches on both sides.

The national championship pairing will be the 68th overall meeting of the two storied programs, with Alabama holding a 38-25-4 (.597) lead in the series that dates back to the 1895 season. The two teams have met once previously outside of regular season SEC play, with the Tide taking a 32-28 decision in the 2012 SEC Championship Game to claim the program’s 23rd SEC title and secure a spot in the national championship game. Nick Saban is 5-2 all-time against Georgia, including a 3-1 mark with the Tide, while Smart has not yet faced Alabama during his young coaching career. Monday’s matchup will mark the third consecutive season in which the Crimson Tide has made an appearance in the national championship game. (UA Athletic Communication Dept)
