TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - R-V’s full of Alabama fans began making their way into Tuscaloosa Friday.

Bama fans like Roger Roper and Ami Andrews said they’re looking forward to a successful football season and plan on enjoying time spent with loved ones watching the sport they love.

“We have friends and family. So I wouldn’t know what it is to be out without them. That’s tailgating. That’s the purpose. And of course, there’s a good football game right in the middle of it,” Roper said.

Some of the fans could be found parked in the Northington R-V lot next to University Mall.

One University of Alabama official says the school is planning for as many as 100,000 people on campus for Saturday’s home opener.
