TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama is holding a special event for veterans before Saturday's football game in Tuscaloosa against Texas A&M.

The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs is hosting a free pre-game tailgate for veterans, troops and their dependents from both schools.

The tailgate starts at 11:30 a.m. CST on the northwest corner of the Quad, where thousands of fans gather before games.

The tailgate is part of a week of events on campus making Veterans Day, which is next Monday.

No. 1 Alabama plays No. 15 A&M at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
