The College Football Playoff announcement on Sunday is not a priority for Alabama football head coach Nick Saban

Saban says he won't be watching the show. 

He's going to church Sunday morning. 

On Saturday night, Saban went on the SEC Network show "SEC Football Final" to talk about Saturday's 52-46 win in the Southeastern Conference Championship against the Florida Gators. 

Saban was asked about the College Football Playoff announcement, which is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. CT Sunday

"I'm going to find out when I get out of church," Saban said. 

Saban said he goes to church from 11 a.m. to noon. 

When SEC Network broadcaster Laura Rutledge asked if his wife would tape the show for him, Saban said, "I'm just trying to get her to go to church with me. I need a date." 

Saban said he and his coaches have a meeting at 1 p.m. where they will start preparing for the Crimson Tide's opponent in the CFP semifinal on Jan. 1.
