Tide holds pair of Wednesday practices

Information provided by Alabama Athletics Dept.

The Alabama football team practiced twice on Wednesday in the Hank Crisp Indoor Practice Facility, focusing on fundamentals before beginning game preparations for its matchup with Oklahoma in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

The Crimson Tide and Sooners will meet in the 80th installment of the bowl game on Thursday, Jan. 2, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

For the second time in as many days, Alabama had four players named All-Americans, this time by the American Football Coaches Association Football Bowl Subdivision coaches.

The Tide was represented by senior quarterback AJ McCarron and junior lineman Cyrus Kouandjio on offense, while senior linebacker C.J. Mosley and junior defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix represented the defense.

Alabama is the first school to place four players on the AFCA All-America Team in two separate years, as it had four selections in 2008 with offensive lineman Andre Smith, center Antoine Caldwell, defensive lineman Terrence Cody and defensive back Rashad Johnson.

The Tide now practices once daily through Monday, Dec. 23, before breaking for the holidays.

    Stephen f. Austin head football coach Clint Conque paid a visit to the Rose City this afternoon. It's perfect timing to pump up the program, considering the Jacks are coming off a dramatic last second win over Incarnate Word. Put on by the alumni association, Conque was the featured speaker at a Lumberjack networking event. Coach Conque got to brag a little about SFA's first victory of the year.
