The Alabama football team continued preparations for Southeastern Conference newcomer Missouri with a two hour practice in full pads Wednesday afternoon at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields.  

"We've had a pretty good week so far," said Alabama head coach Nick Saban. "When you have a team that does a lot of different things (like Missouri does), it gets our players' attention. This is kind of a new opportunity for us to go out and play with more consistency. We've played well at times, but we haven't played well all the time. It's all about how important it is to the leadership that demands the type of standard we are trying to get." 

Three Crimson Tide offensive linemen, Barrett Jones, Chance Warmack and D.J. Fluker, were included on the 43rd Annual Rotary Lombardi Award official top 25 (quarterfinalists). The Rotary Lombardi Award is given to the nation's top college lineman or linebacker each season.  

Phil Steele's 2012 Midseason All-American team included six Alabama players with four garnering first-team honors. Jones and Warmack were on the first team along with cornerback Dee Milliner and linebacker C.J. Mosley. Fluker was named to the second team while quarterback AJ McCarron was a fourth-team choice.  

Kickoff for Saturday's game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT and will be televised nationally by CBS, with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson calling the action and Tracy Wolfson reporting from the sideline.
