No. 2 Alabama will host No. 1 LSU in the SEC on CBS Game of the Week this coming Saturday, and the leader of the free world might be among the people in attendance. Christopher Walsh of BamaCentral.com reported Monday that the Alabama administration is making arrangements for President Donald Trump to be at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the showdown between the Crimson Tide and Tigers. CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins later confirmed the report by noting that President Trump is "expected" to be in attendance. The school has neither confirmed nor denied the report.
It would be the latest in a week-long sports tour for Trump. The 2019 World Series champion Washington Nationals visited the White House on Monday, and he was at Nationals Park for Game 5 of the World Series last month. He also attended UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden this past Saturday.
