The University of Alabama football team entered its game week schedule and preparations for its season opener with No. 3 Florida State on Monday. Head coach Nick Saban and select players met with the media at noon, before the Crimson Tide put in a two-hour session in full pads at the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility later in the day.
Monday marked the first of four practices before Alabama heads to Atlanta, Ga., to take on the Seminoles in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game on Sept. 2. The game is set to kick off at 7 p.m. CT at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Maria Taylor and Tom Rinaldi on the call for ABC. 
The Crimson Tide will practice three more times the week before traveling to Atlanta on Friday.
