Alabama's winning touchdown should look awfully familiar to Georgia fans

Jalen Hurts gave the classiest interview possible after being replaced

He started off looking right but the offensive line bought him enough time to throw to his left.

In a game where everything, including the unexpected, happened, the Alabama Crimson Tide came back to win the NCAA D-1 football national championship by topping the Georgia Bulldogs in a thrilling overtime win, 26-23.

"We were significant this year", senior outside linebacker Davin Bellamy said. "It was a very, very well played game as far as both sides go, and we're just tickled to death we made one more play than they did". But Davis' best play came on this third-and-5 play when he blew up Georgia right guard Ben Cleveland and sacked Jake Fromm early in the fourth quarter - forcing the Bulldogs to punt.

Our teams weren't so hot when I was at Sprayberry, but that's just the way it goes sometimes.

Going into the second half, Georgia was leading 13-0. The pressure alone could have gotten to Tagovailoa, not to mention the Dawg defense, led by All-American linebacker and future first-round draft pick Roquan Smith. I did not include a Pac-12 team in my top 10 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll. Now Alabama gives us a game in Atlanta that felt like one of those college football movies out of the past, like "Navy Blue and Gold". But when Thomas returned the favor after the Crimson Tide pulled off a comeback thriller in Monday's National Championship game, he wasn't actually expecting Saban to answer. Georgia will try again for its first since 1980.

Then Finebaum laughed and said, "But this is the one that got him elevated to sainthood".

Meyer is still great, yes, but Saban - who got his head coaching start at Toledo in 1990 - just secured his place as the greatest of them all, matching Bear Bryant with his sixth national championship.

The 31-yard run is the ideal representation for Hurts as a player.

"I thought I played four quarters last night", he said. "I mean we were on pins and needles". We probably could have switched things up. When it comes to title games, Saban will not, and can not, be out-coached.

Saban explained after the game that he felt the offense needed what Tagovailoa could provide when he made a decision to move away from Hurts at halftime. "So our team turns over a little quicker, so it creates a lot of opportunity for younger players to get a chance to play, and those guys play a lot this year and contribute a lot to our success". Considering Alabama won by three, it's pretty safe to say every point in this game played a role.

ESPN said the audience peaked late in the first half at around 30 million viewers and more than 28.4 million were watching when the winning touchdown was scored. "The next step is finishing the job and winning the thing". I think we played 45 snaps on defense the first half.
