Cedric Mason- Touchdown Alabama Magazine

President Barack Obama will see crimson and white for the fourth time since being sworn into office in 2009.

Alabama coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide are scheduled to meet the 44th commander-in-chief at the White House in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 2. Obama will be honoring the Tide’s 2015 national championship team.

It defeated Clemson 45-40 in the the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, earning Saban his fifth overall national title.

The celebration will start at 3 p.m. (ET) and is open to the press; however, space is limited. Obama started this tradition in order to honor sports teams for their efforts in giving back to their communities.
