Alabama fans have supported this football team all season.

Nick Saban witnessed Bryant-Denny Stadium rocking in the Crimson Tide’s victories over Tennessee and LSU.

He wants that kind of support from Tide fans in Saturday’s SEC Championship Game against Georgia from Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Saban has yet to lose a game in MBS, including three SEEC Championship wins (2018, 2020-21) and a College Football Playoff National Championship victory over the Bulldogs in the 2017 season. In his weekly radio show on Thursday, Saban delivered his final message to Alabama fans as he wants their support for the team in Atlanta (Ga.) for a marquee game.

A victory for Saban would make him 5-1 against Kirby Smart and put the Tide into the College Football Playoff.

“I believe in our guys…I’m excited about trying to do the best job I can do to help them have success in this game, and I think everybody that supports Alabama should do the same,” Saban said to Alabama fans on his radio show before the SEC title game.

Alabama turned its season around after a loss to Texas, and it is in a position to possibly get into the CFP.

Saban wants the fan base to travel and make noise inside MBS to offset Georgia. 

We will see who emerges victoriously and punches its ticket into the final four.
