College Gameday analyst and entertainer Lee Corso celebrated his 80th birthday on Friday and received a special greeting from Alabama head coach Nick Saban. 

Stealing a page out of Corso's Saturday morning tradition, Saban put on the Big Al headgear in a video posted on the show's Instagram account.

The Alabama Crimson Tide and its head coach have gotten to know Corso and his co-hosts pretty well in recent years. Since Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa in 2007, College Gameday has featured the Tide 23 times, which is four more than second-place Oregon.

The show has already scheduled its 24th trip to see Alabama. College Gameday announced earlier this week that it would be in Arlington, Texas for the matchup with Wisconsin on opening weekend.
