Tuscaloosa K-12 School Announces Students Will Have 2 Days Off If Alabama Plays In National Championship

Students attending the Tuscaloosa Academy now have extra incentive to root for their beloved Alabama football team against Ohio State Jan. 1. 

If the No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide defeat the No. 4-ranked Buckeyes in their College Football Playoff semifinal game in New Orleans, the Tuscaloosa Academy, a private, pre-kindergarten through 12th grade "college preparatory school", will close its doors for two days.

There will be no classes in session at the Tuscaloosa Academy on Monday, Jan. 12 - the day of the national championship game - or Tuesday, Jan. 13, if Nick Saban's team beats Urban Meyer's squad and advances to play the winner of No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Florida State.
