Alabama football will play at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the first time this season Saturday, and for the first time since 2019, full capacity is allowed. 

The opponent: the FCS Mercer Bears. They're coming off a big season-opening win, too; Mercer defeated Point University 69-0. Alabama, meanwhile, beat Miami 44-13. Vastly different levels of competition, but big wins for Alabama and Mercer, nonetheless. 

The Crimson Tide and Bears will face off at 3 p.m. on SEC Network.
