Alabama Coach Nick Saban’s keeping a pretty busy schedule gearing up for the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl – the Washington Huskies and Alabama Crimson Tide play Saturday – but took some time out to visit with some young fans at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
The hospital posted the nice photo above with the following comment:
“While in Atlanta for the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, the Alabama Football and Washington Husky Football teams visited with our kiddos. Coach Nick Saban met Grace, a patient who shows her Alabama pride in a unique way—with a houndstooth print prosthetic leg!”

Saturday’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Washington — a College Football Playoff semifinal — will cap the prominent role the Dome has played in the sport since its opening in 1992, AJC sports writer Tim Tucker notes.
While best known as the home of the Falcons, the Dome will host its 152nd college football game, its 25th Peach Bowl.
The building is scheduled to be demolished next year and replaced by the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, under construction next door and now slated to open by August.
