Videos: Gus Malzahn, Nick Saban Team Up To Support Philip Lutzenkirchen Foundation Golf Tournament

You won't often find Gus Malzahn and Nick Saban on the same side, but the two head coaches of Alabama's college football powerhouses came together to support a great cause on Tuesday: the Lutzie 43 Invitational golf tournament. The event, benefiting the foundation started by the family of former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen, who was tragically killed in a car accident almost two years ago, raised significant money to go towards scholarships.

Malzahn and Saban each spoke about Lutzenkirchen's impact at the event.

Philip's sister Abby, a former Alabama soccer player, summed things up best in speaking to

"When the tragedy happened, (Malzahn and Saban) both set the colors aside and were there for my family. It just shows that on the field you can hate each other, but off the field we're just one big family in the state of Alabama."

Great job by both coaches, and everyone involved in the tournament.
