The University of Alabama and ESPN announced Friday that the 2014 A-Day Spring Football Game will be televised by ESPNU on Saturday, April 19. Kickoff at Bryant-Denny Stadium has been moved up to 1 p.m. (CDT).

The annual A-Day Game is the 15th and final practice of the spring. Admission will once again be free to the public. More information on A-Day, including television talent, additional activities, traffic, and parking, will be available at a later date on rolltide.com.

Alabama leads the nation in spring game attendance over the last seven years with a total of 594,851 fans and an average of 84,978 fans per game during that period. The largest A-Day crowd in school history came in 2011 (92,310). In head coach Nick Saban's first year of 2007, the stadium was at full capacity prior to expansion (92,138).

One of the ESPN outlets has carried A-Day live to a national audience in five of the last six years. ESPNU has seen a steady increase since its inception and is now in 75 million households across the country. The network has long-term carriage agreements with all 10 of the top multichannel TV providers - Cablevision, Charter, Comcast, Cox, DirecTV (Channel 208), DISH Network (Channel 141), Mediacom, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS TV and AT&T U-verse. The network is also available in high definition on ESPNU HD.
