Tagovailoa (ankle) starts for No. 2 Alabama vs. No. 1 LSU
Nov 10 2019
His reception at the showdown between Louisiana State and Alabama contrasted with the scene at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, where was booed, and the mixed response to his appearance at a martial arts fight in NY. Despite the positive audience reaction Saturday, Alabama student government leaders prepared for the event by cautioning the more than 101,000 fans against "disruptive behavior" during Trump's visit. Soon Trump and his wife were shown in the stadium's four video screens and prolonged applause began, followed by scattered chants of " USA! USA! Trump had arrived in Tuscaloosa just before 2 p.m. Saturday aboard Air Force One. A supporter with a megaphone could be heard praising Trump's visit by comparing him to Jesus Christ. First lady Melania Trump got an equally enthusiastic welcome. On first-and-10, Burrow handed the ball off the Edwards-Helaire, who carried multiple Alabama defenders down the field to cross the first-down marker and end the game. The towering Baby Trump balloon was set up in a nearby park.
LSU is among the best in the nation offensively, as the Tigers are putting up 46.8 points and 536 yards per contest. And he was also publicly ridiculed at last weekend's UFC 244 match at Madison Square Garden.
Burrow likely solidified his position as a Heisman front-runner in front of a captivated national television audience. But they won't be in the top four just yet. "Much like the scene at today's football game, Doug Jones's far-left agenda in Alabama consistently puts the Democrat on the outside looking in while President Trump can always be found in the arena fighting and boosting the Yellowhammer State to new heights".
The Trumps were seen watching the game from a luxury box. If he can't go, Mac Jones will get the start. I'm actually going to the game. It will be tremendous.
The US President will be welcomed by the sight during next week's visit.
In addition to applause, a large portion of the crowd was said to have given Trump a standing ovation, according to TMZ.
Trump's attendance at the 'Bama-LSU game immediately sparked criticism locally, with AL.com running an opinion piece urging students and alumni to boo the president.
Maybe the names and brands of LSU and Alabama prevent us from viewing those mishaps as we would if the names on the front of the jerseys said Michigan State and Northwestern, for example, but this still felt like a high-level game - just one with its fair share of preventable mistakes.
Alabama went three-and-out on its ensuing possession, underscoring their wide-ranging failures on Saturday afternoon.
