Alabama fans get national championship gear, react to big win

Alabama Crimson Tide is rolling in that feeling after an exciting win in overtime of last night's College Football Playoff National Championship against the Georgia Bulldogs.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts during the first half of Monday's game.

Alabama now has 17 national championships, all-time, and it's Saban's sixth title.

The plan all week, like most weeks, didn't involve the backup quarterback.

Apparently the game-winning touchdown in Monday night's college football national championship between Alabama and Georgia was called "Seattle".

"It just seems to me like, if we're going to have the best chance to win this game, that we may need to do it in a different way", Saban said. "I looked back out, and he was wide open - Smitty was wide open - so I hit him, and here we are now, thank God". "He did a good job, made some plays in the passing game". Winning a bet like that just became a new part of my five year plan. Great for our players.

Kiffin was at Alabama while the Crimson Tide were recruiting both Tagovailoa and Jake Fromm, who first committed to Alabama before switching to Georgia.

Even if you had seen Tagovailoa's seven games of mop-up duty as a true freshman quarterback, you couldn't have seen his game-saving, against Georgia coming. It was the first pick of his career.

The next most watched bowl game was the Orange Bowl as 11.7 million viewers tuned in to see Wisconsin beat Miami, 34-24. Georgia just couldn't seal it up, reminding us of another Georgia team who threw away a football championship last season.

At one point this year, an Alabama fan on a message board reportedly voiced his concern for Tagovailia, who, obviously, born and raised as an American citizen in the 50th state of Hawaii, speaks English, to communicate to his teammates.

This year, though, it was Alabama's time to squeeze into the last playoff spot.

The night and the game and the moment belonged to Nick Saban, and the kid from Hawaii, and a receiver Georgia left wide-open down the field on second-and-forever in overtime. Now Saban is 12-0 against his former assistants.

Mack Wilson and Rashaan Evans were the top contributors on the Alabama defense, which is one of the reasons why Georgia's running attack couldn't work the way it wanted to. A nervous quiet gripped the crowd of 77,430 as 'Bama burned the clock. Only the kicker, Andy Pappanastos, slips a little as he is about to swing his right leg through the ball, and misses badly to the left, and everybody goes to overtime.

Not for long. Tagovailoa looked off the safety and threw the biggest touchdown pass in the history of Alabama football.

The only other team to make the past three playoffs has experience and depth, with QB Kelly Bryant bound to get better in his second season as a starter.

The move to change quarterbacks didn't appear to do much when Tagovailoa was sacked by Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith for a three-and-out on the first possession of the second half.
