TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The second-ranked Alabama football team returned to the practice field on New Year's Day with a two-hour session in shells inside the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility.

The Crimson Tide got All-America center Barrett Jones back on the practice field Tuesday for the first time since the SEC Championship after missing nine practices with a sprained foot.

UA is six days away from playing in their third BCS National Championship Game in the last four years. Alabama won the program's 23rd SEC Championship in 2012 with a thrilling win over then-No. 3 Georgia to punch its ticket to Miami.

"We have been progressing well," offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio said. "There is always room for improvement so we just need to keep going. Notre Dame is impressive up front. They are as good as anyone we have faced. I am really excited to play these guys."
