TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Twice a year it happens.

That's where Alabama's game with Kentucky comes in. Saturday is the second weekend of the fall meet and a very popular event with students and locals alike.
Racing will be over by 7 p.m. ET when the Tide and Wildcats kickoff a few miles away at Commonwealth Stadium, but will attendance be impacted by the ponies? ..
