Set your radio preset and download the radioPup app because Tide 102.9 FM in Tuscaloosa will have more than 10 hours of Alabama football coverage of Saturday during the 2016 season.

The programming schedule will include live and local pregame and postgame shows around every Crimson Tide Sports Network broadcast. That means gameday coverage will begin five hours before kickoff with The Tide Tailgate Show and won't end until Tide Post Game Live goes off the air a few hours after each Alabama game.

Beginning this Saturday when Alabama takes on Southern Cal, this is how the radio lineup will look on Tide 102.9.

Five hours prior to kickoff

The Tide Tailgate Show featuring SEC Network broadcaster Mick Gillispie, Alabama All-American Mike Johnson, and Digital Managing Editor Ben George will begin every Saturday with two hours of analysis and entertainment. Join the show on site at Rounders on the Strip for every home game.

Two hours prior to kickoff

The Crimson Tide Sports Network begins their broadcast of Alabama football with the official pregame show for Alabama football.


Turn down your television and turn up the voice of the Crimson Tide Eli Gold and analyst Phil Savage as they call the action.

Immediately following the game

The Crimson Tide Sports Network will have interviews with coaches and players as they put a wrap on Alabama's game.

Shortly after the game ends

Once Eli Gold finishes his postgame interviews, Tide 102.9 will toss it to Tide Post Game Live hosted by Mick Gillispie. The show will feature game highlights and comments from Nick Saban, but most importantly it will give Bama fans from all over the country a place to sound off and voice their opinion about the game. Join the show live at The Wheelhouse Pub in downtown Tuscaloosa after every home game.

There won't be another radio station in the country with as much coverage of Alabama football every Saturday as Tide 102.9 so take us along with you throughout the season as the Crimson Tide chases its 17th national championship in 2016.
