Dance Alabama! is known for its student-produced, highly choreographed shows, but the organization doesn’t cater solely to dance majors. Anyone interested in stepping up their moves is welcome to attend their monthly dance jam.

The Student Government Association is set to distribute $2,000 this month through its Undergraduate Research Grant. The deadline to apply for funding is Wednesday.

The women’s golf team will travel to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational. “It’s a really fair test of golf,” coach Mic Potter said of the upcoming tournament.

Minutes after the upset loss to the Ole Miss Rebels, the leaders of the Alabama football team stood in a dimly lit clearing outside the visitor’s locker room of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi. While the celebration of one of the biggest wins in Ole Miss history roared a few blocks away and students carried goalposts away from the stadium as a makeshift trophy, Alabama quarterback Blake Sims was already thinking about the next game. “Our leaders need to hold their heads up high and just show everybody that we’re still here,” Sims said over the jeers from the few remaining Ole Miss fans. “We still have the opportunity to win a national championship.” This Saturday, Alabama will have its first opportunity to get back on track to the College Football Playoff when it travels SEE FOOTBALL PAGE 12
