Alabama coach Nick Saban cleared to coach against Georgia

Saban has had three consecutive negative COVID-19 tests — Thursday, Friday and Saturday — after what now appears was a false-positive test on Wednesday.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Saturday morning on College GameDay he expected Saban would be cleared, and had downplayed the potential distraction all week.

The No. 3-ranked Bulldogs (3-0) kick off against the No. 2-ranked Crimson Tide (3-0) at 8 p.m. (TV: CBS).

Saban had left the Alabama football facility on Wednesday after learning of his Wednesday morning test result. He revealed on College GameDay on Saturday that he had tested negative on each of the previous three days.
