Trump Planning on Attending LSU-Alabama Football Game

President Donald Trump is expected to attend the Louisiana State University-Alabama college football game this weekend.

The Federal Aviation Administration is advising that Trump will travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for the game. The VIP Movement Notification is typically for the president.

The University of Alabama is making preparations for the president to attend the game, which will be held at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Nov. 9, according to Sports Illustrated.

Trump, 73, has been engaged in a number of sporting events lately.

In October, Trump and a collection of Republican allies took in Game 5 of the World Series in Washington.

Over the weekend, the president, two of his sons, and several lawmakers went to Madison Square Garden to watch the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 244.

On Monday, the president welcomed the Washington Nationals to the White House to celebrate their World Series win.

The Alabama-LSU game is a matchup between two of the top teams in the nation, possibly the top two.

Trump was in the crowd watching Alabama face Georgia in the National Championship Game for the 2017 season in Atlanta, Georgia. Alabama won 26-23.

Trump later celebrated the win with Alabama at the White House.

“It was truly a win for the ages,” Trump said during that visit. “I dont know if you know, but I was there.”

“It will go down as one of the most exciting finishes in college football history—of any sport,” he added, referring to Alabamas furious comeback.

It will provide the first look at what the committee is thinking about the contenders. LSU, Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Penn State are all expected to be in the mix for those precious top four slots.

Over the last five years, 11 of the 20 teams to appear in the top four of the committees initial rankings went on to reach the playoff. The hit rate has been going up. In 2014, just one of the initial first four advanced to the playoff: second-place Florida StRead More – Source
