Saban cleared to coach after receiving third negative COVID-19 test

Nick Saban is officially cleared for No. 2 Alabama’s game against No. 3 Georgia Saturday night. After testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, the head coach registered negative tests for the virus on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. According to SEC protocols, the three negative results make Wednesday's test a false positive, allowing Saban to coach immediately.
