 WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama honored the University of Alabama football team for winning the BCS championships saying the Crimson Tide ``kept on rising to the occasion and they never let up.''
It was Alabama's third championship win during Obama's presidency. The Crimson Tide defeated Notre Dame 42-14 to win the championship in January.
Alabama football coach Nick Saban gave Obama a team jersey Monday at the White House as players and coaches spread out across the mansion's South Balcony. He joked that Obama now had now been presented with a full uniform.
Saban said: ``I will have a meeting later with you to decide how much playing time you're going to get.''
Obama replied: ``I think you should keep me on the bench.''
