Alabama beats Georgia to win College Football Playoff National Championship

It was dead, Alabama as a whole.

While there's no denying Hurts' accomplishment, there's no way anyone can say that Tagovailoa isn't special.

Shoe Station, an Alabama-based chain, has ordered more than 5,600 t-shirts to celebrate.

In an all-SEC matchup in Atlanta, Alabama and Georgia face off at 7 the College Football Playoff national championship game.

And Jáquez appreciated it.

The Crimson Tide forced three-and-outs the last three times it was on the field. On Monday night, it was a change at quarterback that sparked Alabama's latest title. "We really wanted this one bad and just came up one play short". This one came after it looked like Georgia was not only Cinderella but better. The freshman had seen mop up work in eight games.

So Georgia owned the first half; Alabama owned the rest.

Saban is absolutely one of the best coaches of all time with six national titles to his name at two different schools (one at LSU, five at Alabama).

A tale of Tua quarterbacks?

Ever since Georgia and Alabama punched their tickets to the National Championship Game, much of the build-up has been dominated by President Donald Trump's presence. The score capped a 2-minute drive led by true freshman quarterback Jake Fromm.

Both backs earned more than 1,000 yards this season. Harris was the leading rusher. The game ran so long, Bama's game against No. 1 Clemson had already started by the time UGA's ended. Ruggs caught the most passes. We have to get open.

This was the Kick Six in reverse, mostly because Alabama won this shocker.

This made Saban's onside kick call two years against the Tigers look absolutely sane. "It's like a golf shot".

But Georgia couldn't take advantage of their good fortune, and the loss will haunt the program and second-year coach Kirby Smart. It's a testament to the relentless machine Saban has built.

Alabama dominated the reigning champions 24-6 and guaranteed a new champion will be crowned on tonight.

Who could blame him?

The Patriots were down by 25 to the Falcons.

Alabama rallied from a halftime deficit of 13-0, and a second-half shortfall of 20-7. Tagovailoa was sacked on the team's first play in the overtime session.

"I am so proud of them", he said. And the breaks almost always fall Alabama's way. Saban is an unbeaten 11-0 against coaches who previously served on his staff. Incredibly, he reversed his field and somehow picked up the first down. Though he has UGA a win away from its first national title since 1980, the trend doesn't favor him prevailing. The roof has only been opened once for football since the stadium opened in August.

It also propelled Georgia back into the CFP conversation.

In 2000, Atlanta hosted Super Bowl XXXIV between the Tennessee Titans and the St. Louis Rams at the Georgia Dome, which has since been demolished. "We said last year, 'Don't waste the feeling.' They sure didn't, the way they played tonight".

But if we're being honest here, then we all know who really deserves the majority of the credit for Georgia's success this season, right?
