Thunderous applause for President Trump at Alabama-LSU game
The reaction was a stark contrast to Game 5 of the World Series.

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- President Donald Trump has found comfort in the Deep South from college football fans cheering on the nation's top two teams and him.

His reception at the showdown between Louisiana State and Alabama was in contrast to the scene at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, where he was booed, and the mixed response to his appearance at a martial arts fight in New York.

Back in October, the president was on-hand for the series in Washington when chants erupted of "Lock him up!" Saturday's reaction from fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium included chants of "U-S-A!"

This is Trump's third visit to a major sporting event in the past two weeks and the second SEC football game during his time in office. While the game was clearly in Crimson Tide territory this year, the president has been a frequent visitor to Louisiana recently.
