President Trump reportedly expected to attend LSU-Alabama game

Nick Saban Ed Orgeron Alabama and LSU remain in top 2 spots in latest Amway Coaches Poll

On Tuesday night, something will happen that will take away from Alabama-LSU a teeny, tiny bit of the luster a game of that magnitude deserves: The Crimson Tide will receive a new ranking, and it will nearly assuredly not be No. 1 or No. 2.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is one of the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy, a position that would be enhanced if the Tigers defeated Alabama Saturday in Tuscaloosa.

It will be the third Trump visit to a high-profile sporting event in as many weeks.

Last week the president was loudly booed by the crowd at the World Series baseball, with chants of "lock him up" resonating around Nationals Park in Washington, DC.

It wouldn't be the first time the 45th president was on hand for an Alabama football game.

Multiple reports suggest President Donald Trump is attending the highly anticipated meeting between #1 LSU and #2 Alabama. Trump won Alabama and Louisiana handily in 2016.

Trump also attended the Army-Navy game in 2018. He stayed for the first half before leaving the game. Alabama trailed 13-0 at that point but stormed back to win 26-23 in overtime. Apparently, President Trump will as well, from inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. But that wasn't much comfort for the fans who waited in lines that stretched for as much as a quarter-mile.

The lesson in all of this: If you're attending Saturday's game, you should get there early.
