The Associated Press
Alabama won its third championship during Obama's presidency on Monday night, defeating Notre Dame 42-14 in Miami.
Obama called Saban on Thursday afternoon and noted that it was the third time he'd made the congratulatory call to the coach.
The White House says Obama commended Saban "on the incredible organization he has built" and said he looks forward to congratulating the team in person at the White House.
