The annual spring game is scheduled for noon CT, and ESPN will have the call. After the matchup, the Crimson Tide will honor its 2020 Southeastern Conference and College Football Playoff National Championship team at midfield.

Head coach Nick Saban and quarterback Mac Jones will address the crowd, and the 2020 national championship flag will be raised in the stadium. The Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award organizations will recognize its winner, DeVonta Smith, during the game.

This will be the 14th A-Day matchup of the Saban era as he enters his 15th season as head coach.

The team captains from 2019 and 2020 will leave prints of their hands and cleats in the concrete at Denny Chimes. Names such as Tua Tagovailoa, DeVonta Smith, Anfernee Jennings, Xavier McKinney, Mac Jones, Landon Dickerson, and Alex Leatherwood are receiving the honor.

On Monday, the University of Alabama released an A-Day hype video to Twitter.

Everyone is highly anticipating this spring game as the Tide begins its quest to repeat as national champions. The ESPN team of Kirk Herbstreit (field analysis), Joey Galloway (field analysis), Joe Tessitore (both commentary), and Lauren Sisler (sideline reporter) will call the action.
