Local News

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Crimson Tide just got themselves a new commitment for the 2019 season. Although this recruit doesn’t tackle quarterbacks but rather hunger.

Conecuh Sausage has been named the “official smoked sausage” of the University of Alabama athletics.

“We’re excited about reaching more Crimson Tide fans with Conecuh Sausage, and we are pleased to be working with Athletics and Crimson Tide Sports Marketing,” said owner John Sessions. “We look forward to a successful partnership and can’t wait to get started with Alabama football.”

The sausage suppliers have been making the smoked meat since 1947 in Evergreen, Ala.

The pregame show for Alabama football games will now also be titled the “Conecuh Sausage Crimson Tide Tailgate Party.”
