Alabama coach Nick Saban and athletic director Greg Byrne have tested positive for COVID-19, four days before the Southeastern Conference's biggest regular-season showdown.

Both said their tests Wednesday morning came back positive, but Saban said he didn't have any symptoms by late afternoon.

The second-ranked Crimson Tide is set to face No. 3 Georgia on Saturday and might be without their iconic 68-year-old coach.

Saban said he immediately left the football building to isolate at home.
