Nick Saban cleared to coach vs. Georgia after third straight negative COVID-19 test

Nick Saban will be on the sideline Saturday night as Alabama takes on the No. 3-ranked Georgia Bulldogs. 

After testing positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday, Saban has returned three consecutive negative COVID-19 tests and is eligible to coach, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter:

On Thursday night, Saban said he was "doing great" after being diagnosed with COVID-19 and has been asymptomatic.

Saban has overseen practices via Zoom from his home this week and revealed he's been able to do everything he's normally done in preparation for the game.

Alabama is looking for its fourth win of the season after beating Missouri, Texas A&M and Ole Miss during the first three weeks of the season.
