Saban Negative for Coronavirus in New Test

Alabama coach Nick Saban tested negative for the coronavirus following an earlier diagnosis, the University said Friday. A team physician, Dr. Jeff Allen, said the PCR test was administered Thursday. He said if Saban has three successive negative tests, each taken 24 hours apart, he will be cleared to return. The timing gives Saban a chance to be back on the field, when Alabama hosts No. 3 Georgia Saturday at 7 p.m.
