The Iron Bowl is inching closer to kickoff, and both Alabama and Auburn are now going through pregame warm ups.

Earlier on Saturday, the University of Alabama Athletics posted this photo of Nick Saban leading his second-ranked Crimson Tide through the Walk of Champions on their Facebook page.

"Check out Coach Saban leading the team on the Walk of Champions before today's Iron Bowl! Roll Tide!" UA Athletics posted with the photo.

As of 1 p.m., 3,784 people had liked the photo and had been shared nearly 600 times.

A large crowd gathered for the home game ritual that allows fans to see their favorite players and coaches up close and personal.
