Cotton Bowl week has arrived and the Alabama football team arrived in Dallas over the weekend to begin preparations for Thursday night's game against Michigan State.

This is the second consecutive year that Nick Saban's team has advanced to the College Football Playoff, and the team will look to avenge last year's semifinal loss to Big Ten champion Ohio State.

The game will kickoff at 7PM and air nationally on ESPN. The network released this promo to get fans ready for the huge game on New Year's Eve.
