TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - President Trump officially confirmed during a rally in Monroe, La. Wednesday evening that he’ll be attending the Alabama/LSU game in Tuscaloosa on Saturday afternoon.
The confirmation comes after several reports earlier in the week that the president would be at the game.
U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy also announced he will be in attendance as well.
“President Trump is always with the best. He is going to the best game with the best team. He will also see Alabama play,” said Dr. Cassidy.
Cassidy, an avid LSU fan, is predicting a 38-35 victory for the Tigers on Saturday.
“I love football. I love those two states. I think I better remain neutral! But we’re going to have a good game,” said President Trump, who went on to praise LSU’s Heisman Trophy frontrunner and “great” quarterback Joe Burrow.
Wednesday evening, the FAA issued a Temporary Flight Restriction for Tuscaloosa airspace in effect Saturday afternoon and evening.
Kickoff for the huge SEC matchup at Bryant-Denny Stadium is Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
