This Week with the Crimson Tide Begins the Nick Saban Birthday Celebration

Christopher Walsh

It’s going to be a birthday party at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday as for the first time since he arrived in 2007 the Crimson Tide will play on Halloween, Nick Saban’s birthday.

He’s turning 69.

ESPN will show the party, costumes optional, at 6 p.m.

Think the fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium will sing to him, maybe between quarters? If Alabama has the lead?

Meanwhile,

• Men’s golf is at the Vanderbilt Legends Collegiate through Tuesday.

• The SEC Championships in cross country will be held at LSU on Friday.

• Volleyball visits Florida on Friday and Saturday.

• Soccer hosts Texas A&M on Friday.
