Tide holds final practice before Fayetteville face-off

TUSCALOOSA, AL– The Alabama football team practiced for two-hours in shorts Thursday at the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility. It was the Tide's final practice before Saturday's top-10 showdown at Arkansas.

The Tide face a fast-paced, physical battle against the Razorbacks, and everyone is prepared to sweat it out for a win.

"Everybody has to work hard," junior running back Mark Ingram said. "Just being able to show up isn't going to get us a victory; we're going to have to work hard. They're not going to give us anything. We're going to have to earn everything we do on Saturday."

Alabama focused on special teams Thursday. Special Teams has seen improvement in kickoff coverage and kickoff returns so far this season. Trent Richardson's 91-yard kickoff return for a touchdown last week against Duke was the first for Alabama since Tyrone Prothro ran back a kickoff against Kentucky in October of 2004.

The Tide will hold a final walk-through in Tuscaloosa Friday before flying into Northwest Arkansas later in the afternoon. No. 1 Alabama will face off against No. 10 Arkansas Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Ark.

The game will be televised nationally by CBS Sports with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson calling the game from the booth and Tracy Wolfson reporting from the sideline.
