Alabama's football program unveiled its bold new lights display at Bryant-Denny Stadium during Saturday night's win over Tennessee. While most fans appeared to enjoy it, there were some critics.

Crimson Tide AD Greg Byrne told reporters that the lights were upgraded to be more efficient, going to LEDs, and the ability to have color shows was just a plus.

“The current lights were at the end of their effective life and we wanted to go to LEDs because they are so much more efficient,” Byrne told The Tuscaloosa News in August. “As an added bonus, that gave us some color capability and we are excited about exploring some different ways to use that.”

Alabama is one of several college football programs to have displays like this:

Alabama will play at home again next Saturday, hosting Arkansas. The Crimson Tide then take on No. 2 LSU at home following a bye week.

Bryant-Denny Stadium should be really jacked up for that one.
