TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama returned to the practice field
for the first time since a difficult loss to Auburn.
The Crimson Tide started preparing Thursday for the Capital One
Bowl Jan. 1 against Michigan State with memories from their last
outing still stinging.
Linebacker Dont'a Hightower says the 28-27 loss "is still in
the back of our mind." The Tide raced ahead 24-0 and had never
blown such a big lead to lose a game.
Hightower says he watched the Iron Bowl a couple of times while
he was at home after the semester. He says the team can help redeem itself with a win in the bowl game.
The Tide also lost All-America safety Mark Barron for the bowl
game with a torn muscle during that Iron Bowl.
