Bama practices for Tigers in full pads

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama football team returned outdoors and practiced for two hours in full pads, Wednesday afternoon. The Crimson Tide continued its preparations for the rival Auburn Tigers as the Iron Bowl looms just three days away.  

"We have had a couple of hard work days at practice," Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. "It is a great opportunity for our team this Saturday against a very good Auburn team on the road. There is a lot at stake out there." 

For the 27th time since 1980, at least one team is ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 entering the annual Iron Bowl. Neither team was ranked in 1982, 1998 and 2003. Alabama is No. 2 in the current AP poll and is ranked entering the Iron Bowl for the 38th time in history.  

The Crimson Tide is 26-11 against the Tigers when ranked in the AP poll. Auburn has been ranked a total of 26 times in Iron Bowl history and has compiled a 19-8 record when ranked in the AP Top 25. The highest ranked team owns a 41-10 record in the series since 1955. 

Saturday's game will be broadcast nationally on CBS with Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson and Tracy Wolfson calling the action.
