Consider yourselves warned.
The biggest game of Week 11 will feature No. 2 LSU traveling to Tuscaloosa to square off with No. 3 Alabama at Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday afternoon. Earlier this week, it was reported that President Donald Trump will be in attendance and take in at least a part of the latest Game of the Century.
With the leader of the free world as part of the crowd, security will, obviously, be significantly ramped up, with the university sending out a press release shortly after it was confirmed that the President will be in the stadium that those attending the game should arrive early “to be expedited through the security screening process.”
Another development related to the President’s presence surfaced overnight, with al.com noting that the university’s Student Government Association sent out a letter to student groups that have reserved blocks of seating at the stadium that “disruptive behavior” during the game will not be tolerated. Those that do violate the directive will risk their organization’s block seating being stripped from them for the remainder of the season.
From the University of Alabama SGA, ahead of President Trump's visit to the game. Strange that in all the games in which drunken bacchanalia has been tolerated, if not celebrated and encouraged I've never once been warned to not be "disruptive" pic.twitter.com/1j87QlxSDr

According to the website, “[a]lmost 60 student groups – mostly Greek organizations – have reserved seat blocks at Bryant-Denny Stadium.”
It should be noted that, after the LSU game, Alabama’s lone home date the rest of the regular season is against FCS Western Carolina (11/23), with road trips to Mississippi State (11/16) and archrival Auburn (Nov. 30) sandwiched around that in-season scrimmage.
