TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama’s national championship football team was welcomed to the White House on Tuesday by President Donald Trump during a ceremony on the South Lawn.

Head coach Nick Saban and the team presented President Trump with an Alabama jersey, helmet and a game ball from the College Football Playoff National Championship Game during the ceremony. The visit also included a tour of the White House, including the East Room, State Dining Room, Red Room, Blue Room and Green Room.

The trip to the White House was the Crimson Tide’s fifth since the spring of 2010, in recognition of the Tide’s 26-23 come-from-behind-overtime victory over Georgia in the 2018 CFP National Championship Game in Atlanta. It was Alabama’s 17th national championship and the fifth under Nick Saban.
