Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough yelled the expletive as the team walked onto the field for the game, according to a clip shared by Sporting News.


Trump appeared on the field before the game, standing at midfield for the national anthem before moving to a suite.

Trump was greeted with applause and some boos.

The president came under fire last year for attacking NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest racial inequality, saying they should be fired. NFL players and owners widely criticized Trump for his comments, and many took part in the protests or joined in acts of solidarity in the games immediately after his attacks.

Scarbrough tweeted after the game that he said "Georgia."
