See the Rosters for Alabama’s 2017 A-Day Game
Winner gets steak. Loser gets beans.
That is what’s on the line at the annual A-Day game in Tuscaloosa. The Alabama football team splits into a Crimson and White team with an important meal on the line. As head coach Nick Saban explained during his press conference on Thursday, the winners get steak, a white tablecloth, and a waiter. The losers only get pork and beans served on a paper plate.
Of course, Saban gets to pick which side he wants to eat with.
The rosters were set this week and freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa shared a picture on Twitter.

Alabama coaches constructed the rosters to provide the best competition for the players and fans on Saturday.
“The White team will consist of the first defense and the second offense,” Saban said. “The Crimson team will have the first offense and the second defense. So the ones will always play against the ones. It’s the most competitive way that we can have the game.”
The game is set to kickoff at 2PM inside Bryant-Denny Stadium and will be televised by ESPN. Fans can hear the game locally on 95.3 the Bear and Tide 102.9.
