No. 10 Alabama hosts fledgling Georgia State

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Defending national champion Alabama
versus fledgling FCS team Georgia State.

It's not exactly a matchup for the ages, but these two teams on
opposite ends of the college football spectrum will meet Thursday
night.

The most intriguing storyline will be the return of former
Crimson Tide coach Bill Curry, now leading the first-year Georgia
State program.

The game should be a warmup for No. 10 Alabama before the Iron
Bowl against No. 2 Auburn.

After all, the Tide had six first-team AP All-Americans last
season. That matches the win total in Georgia State's brief
history.

It's the first time Alabama has played on Thursday night since
the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks forced a rescheduling of the
Southern Miss game in 2001.
