The Alabama Crimson Tide will play the 2013 A-Day Game this Saturday, April 20, with kickoff from Bryant-Denny Stadium scheduled for 3 p.m. ET (2 p.m. local). The game is free for the public to attend. For those that can't make it in person, the game will be shown on ESPN2. The A-Day Game is just one part of A-Day Weekend, and you can see the full schedule of events here.
The two lines present the biggest position battles for the Crimson Tide heading into 2013, as almost every skill position player from last year's national championship team is back. Alabama loses Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack on the offensive line, and it looks like it will be between Ryan Kelly, Chad Lindsay, and Arie Kouandjio to fill those two spots at center and left guard.
On defense, Alabama has to replace all three defensive line starters following the departure of Jesse Williams, Damion Square, and Quinton Dial. Jeoffrey Pagan and Ed Stinson are the favorites to become the new starting defensive ends, and Brandon Ivory, a 6'4, 315 pound sophomore, is listed ahead of Darren Lake (6'3, 315 pounds) at nose tackle.
