Tide Football Finalizes Gameplan for SEC-CG Matchup with No. 15 Florida..

on Friday, December 02, 2016

Crimson Tide Football:

The University of Alabama football team went through a final practice on Thursday afternoon, working a 90-minute session in shells under the roof of the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility. 

The practice focused on special teams and put the final touches on a gameplan for this weekend's SEC Championship Game matchup with No. 15 Florida.

Alabama and Florida will square off in Atlanta to determine this year's conference champion. It will mark the 11th time the Crimson Tide will play in the game, while Florida will make its league-leading 12th appearance. 

CBS will once again carry all the action with kickoff set for 3:10 p.m. CT inside the Georgia Dome. Verne Lunquist and Gary Danielson will work from the booth while Allie LaForce patrols the sidelines.

The Crimson Tide holds the all-time advantage in the series, 25-14 (26-14 actual), but both teams have split SEC Championship Game meetings 4-4. 

Back in 1992, the Tide took the initial matchup, 28-21, in front of a record crowd of 83,091 fans. The very next year, Florida earned the 28-13 victory and followed that up with a second straight win, 24-23, over the Crimson Tide in 1994.

Alabama and Florida met as the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the 2008 meeting, with Tim Tebow leading the Gators to a 31-20 win in Atlanta. 

The Crimson Tide countered the very next season with a 32-13 win to send top-ranked Florida home and earn No. 2 Alabama a trip to Pasadena, Calif., for the 2009 BCS National Championship Game. The Tide took down Texas in that game to earn Nick Saban his first national title at Alabama.

In the most recent matchup at the 2015 SEC Championship Game, the Crimson Tide came away with a 29-15 victory over the Gators. Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry rushed for 189 yards and a touchdown on his way to MVP honors while Jake Coker threw for 204 yards and two scores.

The team will travel to Atlanta on Friday and complete a walkthrough at the Georgia Dome.

The individual awards season begins next week, with numerous members of the Crimson Tide due to appear at various ceremonies in hopes of bringing home hardware for the Alabama football program.
