NFL Network to air special on Nick Saban Friday night
Even though Illinois and Maryland will be playing on Friday night, that won’t stop NFL Network from airing a Nick Saban special during it.
The network will be airing their series called “A football life” as it’s done for so many other former players and coaches throughout the years.
In a promo teaser video for the show, Saban touches on being No. 1 and says, “If you ask everybody do you want to be number 1, everybody will raise their hand. But are they willing to do what the beasts do? I mean it’s special to be that.”
“Do you want to be number 1…”

It airs at 9 p.m. ET and will run for an hour.
Alabama is already off to a fast start this season as they’ve won their first 2 games handily. They beat Miami 44-13 in Week 1, and then raced past Mercer in Week 2, 48-14.
They’ll face their first true test of the season this Saturday though as the Crimson Tide travels to Gainesville to take on No. 11 Florida. Kickoff will be at 3:30 p.m. ET.
