Update 10:20 a.m. Thursday: There’s a good reason Alabama’s A-Day game won’t be televised by ESPN this year.
The network will not broadcast any spring games this April over the air, an ESPN spokesperson said. The family of networks televised several scrimmages each of the past few years and Alabama was on national TV each of the past three.
There is still a chance the April 14 A-Day Game could be picked up on ESPN3.com for out of market viewers. Stay tuned for any such update.

Original post: The university just announced the TV plan for the April 14 A-Day Game. And for the first time in a few years, it does not include the ESPN family of networks.
CSS will televise the 2 p.m. game that’s free and open to the public.
Chris Stewart and Tyler Watts will call the action from the booth while Tom Roberts will be the sideline reporter. It’s the same crew that does the one pay-per-view game every season.
Unlike the worldwide ESPN networks, CSS is a regional group that runs from Texas to West Virginia. The network is not available from all cable and satellite providers.
