Alabama Defeats Georgia In Overtime To Win National Championship

Alabama Defeats Georgia In Overtime To Win National Championship

It's an all-SEC matchup in tonight's college football playoff national championship (8 p.m.) as Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban goes for his fifth title at Alabama and sixth crown overall. "He's built for stuff like this. You know, he has that "it factor" and I'm so happy for him, so happy for this team".

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts during the first half of Monday's game. Take Alabama's defense: After their ranks were depleted by National Football League departures, seven Crimson Tide linebackers who either were starters or key contributors missed at least one game because of injury during the regular season.

But Saban has had little time and inclination to ponder those accomplishments. "There's lots of highs and lows".

The game, played at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, kicked off with an appearance from President Donald Trump, who was greeted with cheers - and a smattering of boos - as he walked onto the field with members of the ROTC during the pregame festivities.

Every football player has his bad days, but those days are that much worse when they happen to come in the biggest game of the year. "Once you got it in your blood, it's there for life and I love them".

"We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you", Saban told him after Alabama beat Georgia 26-23 to win a national championship.

And of course at the end of regulation, the kid took Alabama down the field like he had already done something like that a dozen times as the Alabama quarterback, and sets up what could have been the winning field goal, from 36 yards, for his kicker. There's something about winning a national championship that makes it seem like good timing.


Hurts had only thrown one interception all season. He also darted away from pass rushers and made some impeccable throws, showing poise of a veteran. Tagovailoa tied the game in the final four minutes, with a 4th-down touchdown pass to Calvin Ridley, knotting the game at 20, and setting up the thrilling finish.

He finished 14 for 24 for 166 yards.

The coach said that nothing is ever too big for the player he and his Saint Louis School players called Reverend Tagovailoa because he would recite passages from the Bible and relate them to their situation on the field.

But he found wide receiver DeVonta Smith, and hit him with a ideal pass as he sprinted into the end zone, giving Alabama the final, winning touchdown. "Smitty was wide open".

Few will forget Monday's performance, one that featured a 13-point second-half swing thanks, in part, to the outstanding play young quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

The plan all week, like most weeks, didn't involve the backup quarterback. That 26-23 overtime win over Georgia was nearly too much to process, even for Nick Saban, who when it was over actually sputtered "I've never been happier in my life". "He did a good job, made some plays in the passing game". Of all the championships Alabama has won, some say this one just feels more special.

"I am here buying shirts, hats, pennants and an Alabama sign".
