WASHINGTON — The White House announced the University of Alabama football team will visit next month.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the team will come to the White House on April 10.

Alabama won its fifth national title in nine years in January, defeating Georgia 26-23 in overtime in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Atlanta. It was the Crimson Tide’s 17th overall national championship and fifth under Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.

Sanders noted that President Donald Trump attended the game and looks forward to hosting Saban and the Crimson Tide players.
