Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WHNT) - Alabama has released its practice schedule for the BCS National Championship Game.  All practices will be closed to the public.

The schedule will begin December 18th, two weeks after the Tide clinched the SEC Championship.  Nick Saban says he doesn't want to work his team for the entire month because they will burn-out.  His opponent, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly, says he wants to face the Tide at its best.

Alabama will have a three-day break for Christmas and have another two-day break just before the New Year.
