Alabama has suspended the block tickets of 20 student groups for the team's game against Tennessee on Saturday, according to CollegeFootballTalk.

Earlier in the week, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban chastised students for not staying through the end of the team's blowout win over Arkansas:

“In some kind of way, everybody that chooses to go to the game should stay there and support the team for the game,” Saban said this week. ”Maybe if you’re not interested in doing that, you should let someone else go who would really like to go because I have a lot of people who want to go.”

The newly opened seats will be available to all student ticket holders.
