Looking for a good crowd tonight as Alabama comes to town to take on the Trojans at Riddle-Pace.

The Crimson Tide are 8-12 and were swept by Florida Atlantic to open the season at home. Alabama was also recently swept by #4 Arkansas in Fayetteville. The Crimson Tide are in the midst of two tough weekend conference series. They will host #17 Ole Miss this weekend.

Troy is 8-8 and searching for answers as well after they dropped their Sun Belt Conference opening series to South Alabama that concluded with a 16-4 pounding by the Jaguars.
