Tuscaloosa County, a chapter of the UA National Alumni Association, is offering transportation on Dec. 1 to and from Atlanta for the 2018 SEC Championship Game, a rematch between Alabama and Georgia.

Tickets cost $75 each. Deadline is Nov. 23.

The chapter asks that people arrive 30 minutes before the bus departs at 8:30 a.m. from Coleman Coliseum. It will return to Tuscaloosa immediately after the game, which will kick off at 3 p.m. CT in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Actual game tickets are not included. Only water and snacks will be provided.

Honorary captains

Bill “Brother” Oliver and Jimmy Sharpe will be available for autographs at the Paul W. Bryant Museum on Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. and lasting for an hour. The two former Crimson Tide members are set to be honorary captains for Alabama’s home game against Mississippi State.

Oliver played for UA from 1959-61, was an assistant coach from 1990-91 and then became defensive coordinator from 1993-95. Sharpe played from 1960-62 and then was an assistant from 1963-73.

The Paul W. Bear Bryant Museum will also extend its hours on game day. It’ll be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
