Bama heads indoors to continue preps for Penn State

TUSCALOOSA, AL.  – The Alabama football team held a two-hour session in full pads inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility Wednesday afternoon as preparation continues for Saturday night's game against No. 18/14 Penn State. 

After moving indoors for the final two practices in anticipation of last week's game against San Jose State, head coach Nick Saban stuck to a similar schedule again this week by giving players a break from the heat and moving practice indoors.

"We've had a pretty good week so far," Saban said after Wednesday's practice. "We decided to go inside last week on Wednesday and Thursday mainly because of the heat. Players really worked hard yesterday, and I just think this takes a toll on you after a while."

In terms of preparing for the Nittany Lions, Saban was pleased with the way the players have handled the week's routine.

"I think our players have really approached this week the right way in terms of trying to improve and get better," Saban said.  "Every time you get a test, you're going to get tested on a different level with different information.  You've got to prepare yourself right and do the right things so that you can use wherever you were as the standard to improve from."

Alabama will continue practice Thursday afternoon before holding a walk-through on Friday.  Kickoff for Saturday's game at Bryant-Denny Stadium is slated for 6:06 p.m. on ESPN. GameDay will be televised live from the Walk of Champions from 8-11 Saturday morning.
