Red Coat Marching Band wears a silver ribbon for Alabama Colorguard member who lost her battle with cancer.

ATLANTA — On Monday, ahead of the College Football National Championship game, the University of Georgia's Redcoat Marching band warmed up Bulldog fans at fan central.

But anyone there may have noticed a subtle addition to the band's uniform: a silver ribbon.

WXIA's Joe Henke was there with the band, who told him they planned to wear the ribbons to honor a color guard member of Alabama's Million Dollar Band who was battling cancer. Band members told Henke she died Monday morning ahead of the game.

The Georgia Bulldogs take on the University of Alabama in the Championship game Monday night inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
