We have finally done it. We are officially under 100 days until the Alabama Crimson Tide are back on a football field. After another national championship winning season, Nick Saban and company are looking for a repeat performance in 2021.

The opening week matchup is against the Miami Hurricanes in Atlanta, Ga. on Sept. 4. With it now being June 8, we are now 88 days away from the start!

Fifth-year tight end Major Tennison has been wearing the No. 88 ever since he arrived on campus back in 2017. He’s seen action in a handful of games over the course of his career, bringing in a total of six catches for 55 yards and a touchdown.

Another former tight end, O.J. Howard, also wore the number during his four-year stint in Tuscaloosa.
