President To Host Alabama Monday
Alabama Coach Nick Saban is fast learning his way around the White House. For the third time in four years Saban is taking a national championship Crimson Tide team to meet President Obama.
The White House ceremony will take place Monday at 2:05 p.m. EDT (1:05 central time).
Alabama is in spring practice, but Monday was not scheduled for a work day. The Crimson Tide will have a scrimmage at Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday and then return to the practice field on Tuesday.
Alabama is being honored for its 2012 national championship, won with a 42-14 win over Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game. The Crimson Tide was also honored at the White House following national championships in 2011 and 2009.
The announcement said that President Obama would recognize the Tide both for its 15th national championship and for "the efforts by the Crimson Tide to give back to their community."
