TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama students and faculty won't have to worry about missing class to attend the national title football game.
The university canceled classes from Jan. 6-8.
The school said Tuesday that students will have to make up for the lost class time. They have two days of classes upon returning from the Christmas break before getting another respite.
Alabama cited the number of students who have to be in Pasadena and those students and staff who want to attend the game.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide plays No. 2 Texas on Jan. 7 in Pasadena, Calif. Alabama last won the national championship in the 1992 season.
