More good news was administered on Thursday for fans of Alabama football.

The President of the University of Alabama Dr. Stuart Bell spoke with CBS 42 on if he is planning on having a college football season this fall despite there being a current Coronavirus pandemic across the country.

“As we look forward to accomplishing another great fall semester welcoming back students and welcoming back our sports teams to be able to have competition. Those are our plans and it’s a high bar and anticipates that we will be able to meet that,” said Bell.

Bell also assured the public that all class rooms and dorms will be disinfected and cleaned before the students arrival.

“We will make sure we have it clean, but it will also be about how we accomplish social distancing to help our students. How do we make sure they have the best experience in the classroom,” said Bell.

On Wednesday the university announced that it plans to have students on campus this fall, and will look to get them back as early as the second summer semester.

“We certainly our plan is that we will have a football season and fans will be a part of it in our stadium. So we are working on that and our first games are in September. So we have time and we also know we have work to do,” said Bell.

Alabama’s fall semester classes are slated to begin on Aug. 19.
