Alabama captains turned their backs on post-coin-toss handshake with Washington | FOX Sports

The Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl is getting off to a tense start.

After the coin-flip to start the game between No. 4 Washington and No. 1 Alabama, the Washington captains took a step toward the Alabama captains to shake hands.

The Crimson Tide team leaders then pulled a “not so fast.”

(function(d, s, id) { if (d.getElementById(id)) return; var js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = ‘//’; d.getElementsByTagName(‘body’)[0].appendChild(js); }(document, ‘script’, ‘wibbitz-static-embed’));

The Alabama captains walked away without shaking hands with their opponents, and then jogged back to their sideline.

UPDATE: The Alabama captains did shake hands with Washington players before the coin toss, but did not do so after the coin toss, when Washington went for a second handshake.
