The Alabama football team continued preparations for Saturday's season opener against Kent State with a two hour session in full pads on Monday afternoon on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields. 

The Golden Flashes, under first-year head coach Darrell Hazell, will be making their first trip to Tuscaloosa. Kent State is coming off a 5-7 season with a 4-4 mark in Mid-American Conference play. The Golden Flashes are 0-9 all-time against Southeastern Conference opponents. 

"There are a lot of unknowns, more unknowns than you usually have in preparation for a game," said Alabama head coach Nick Saban. "Really, the key thing is to take care of business. Everybody take the approach to take care of business and challenge themselves to prepare well, play the best football, see where our team is and work to create an identity of who we want to be, what we want to be, what we want to accomplish and spend our time focused on those things." 

Kickoff for Saturday's contest against Kent State is slated for 11:21 a.m. CT in Bryant-Denny Stadium. The game will be broadcast on the SEC Network with the action being called by Dave Neal, Andre Ware and Cara Capuano. 

Junior transfer Duron Carter suited up in shorts and helmet for his first practice with the Crimson Tide on Monday. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., spent last season at Coffeyville Community College following his freshman year at Ohio State.
