The University of Alabama kicked off Fan Day and open practice Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Fans from across the country make the pilgrimage to Tuscaloosa for a preview of the Crimson Tide’s upcoming talent.
University of Alabama Fan Joseph Dew said he’s been waiting for a week to see the Tide.
“This shows that I’m the first guy in line so, I’ve been the first guy for the past two years,” Dew said. “The first time I started coming was in 2010. It gets greater every year.”
Alabama fan Tommy Graham said he loves being around Tide fans.
The first Alabama game is Sept. 2 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta against Florida State. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
