We got the I-Bowl practice schedule today. We had been told the teams were coming to town on Dec. 26 to begin preparations for the Dec. 30 game at Independence Stadium.
Colorado is still coming on Dec. 26.
The Crimson Tide will spend Christmas in Shreveport with an afternoon workout at Independence Stadium.
Saban and Christmas have been tied together in past years. You may remember Christmas 2004 as the year he left LSU for the Miami Dolphins job.
