“It’s an honor, I think, that the President of the United States would be interested enough to come to the game,” Saban said, via the Montgomery Advertiser. “I’m sure we’ll do everything we can to welcome him.”

Minus Tua, No. 1 Alabama dominates Arkansas 48-7

  Minus Tua, No. 1 Alabama dominates Arkansas 48-7 Without injured Tua Tagovailoa, top-ranked Alabama coasted to a 48-7 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night. Even without the Heisman Trophy candidate Tagovailoa, the Tide (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) raced to a 41-0 halftime lead and Jones only played one drive into the second half. The Razorbacks (2-6, 0-5) couldn't muster much challenge on either side of the ball in what turned into a drama-free tuneup for Alabama's game in two weeks against No. 2 LSU.BOX SCORE: NO.

Alabama head coach said that President Donald Trump ’ s visit to the Alabama - LSU game on Saturday will be “ an honor .” Trump is expected to attend the “Well, it ’ s an honor , I think, that the president of the United States would be interested enough to come to the game,” Nick Saban said Wednesday.

Saban has plenty of experience with presidents, having made the trip to the White House multiple times after winning national titles — when Trump, President Barack Obama and President George W. Bush were in office. He also had a run-in with President Bill Clinton while he was at Michigan State, and even offered up his office couch.

“Bill Clinton came to Michigan State to speak at the graduation commencement ceremony, and they actually headquartered in our facility building, so I had the opportunity to meet him and talk to him,” Saban said, via the Advertiser. “[At one point], the Secret Service guys came and got my couch and asked if they could take it to his office so he could take a nap, and I said, ‘Certainly.’”

Trump’s recent string of sporting events

The game will mark Trump’s third appearance at a major sporting event in as many weeks. He attended Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park last month, and was met with a loud chorus of boos, a “lock him up” chant and even a pro-impeachment banner. Trump then made the trip to UFC 244 on Saturday — becoming the first sitting or former president to attend an MMA bout — and received a mixed reaction from the crowd at Madison Square Garden.

Offense, not defenses, will decide who wins the Alabama-LSU showdown

  Offense, not defenses, will decide who wins the Alabama-LSU showdown In previous matchups between LSU and Alabama, the defenses have been dominant. In this No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup, it is the offenses that will be key.The helmets and jerseys are the same; Nick Saban keeps chugging along as Alabama's head coach; the defenses remain stingy, if to a lesser degree than in the recent past; and the Tigers and the Tide are still among the gold standard in the Bowl Subdivision. Yet much has changed since the last time LSU won a game in this series, during the famous 9-6 overtime victory eight years ago this week, and nowhere is the shift in style and approach more evident than in how this game will be centered on offensive fireworks.

Trump , attempting to praise Alabama coach Nick Saban , repeatedly called him “Lou Saban ” instead. “Really successful coach,” Trump said about Tuberville Trump has been to multiple Alabama games while in the White House. He attended the 2018 national championship game when Alabama beat

It’s unclear what reaction he’ll receive on Saturday, though the Alabama Student Government Association issued a warning to students on Wednesday in a letter. Any students or organizations that “engage in disruptive behavior” during the game, the letter said, will be “removed from block seating instantly for the remainder of the season.”

The student government later sent out another letter after backlash from the first, claiming the initial warning had “nothing to do with anyone’s First Amendment rights.”

Either way, neither Saban nor LSU quarterback Joe Burrow seem concerned about a potential sideshow or hosting a president in the midst of an impeachment inquiry.

“Regardless of your political views, that’s pretty cool having the president at the game,” Burrow said Monday, via the Lafayette Daily Advertiser. “Doesn’t matter whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, the president at the game’s pretty cool.”
