Alabama Wins NCAA Football Championship

Nick Saban surprises Justin Thomas by actually answering congratulatory phone call after Alabama win

Georgia Bulldogs upbeat about future despite disappointment of national title game loss

After all, this was essentially a second SEC championship game with the Bulldogs facing the Crimson Tide instead of Auburn. When faced with tough times, quarterbacks from both teams displayed extraordinary grace and humility.

Entering the game in the second half to give Alabama, held scoreless until then, a spark, Tagovialoa tossed a 41-yard touchdown pass to a streaking DeVonta Smith on the second play of the Tide's overtime possession for the game-winner.

The Crimson Tide had a chance to win the game in regulation, but senior Andy Pappanastos sailed a 36-year field goal wide left of the uprights. This is the ninth time in the last 12 seasons that a team from the SEC has won the national championship.

The Zac Brown Band, along with David Walker and High Praise, sang the national anthem together. This means he has six national titles in a time - he's compared to Bear Bryant, the other greatest coach in college football.

"God is good, all the time", he declared.

In rewatching, two plays stood out in the first half that could've dramatically changed everything. Alabama is the first preseason No. 1 to finish atop the final poll since USC in 2004.

Meanwhile, NBC's "Today" was the most popular morning news show on Hoda Kotb's first week as co-host of the first two hours with Savannah Guthrie, just as it was before her appointment - when she subbed for the fired Matt Lauer. He said Alabama has as many as seven players total considering entering the draft. "Hopefully we'll be able to continue to do that in the future".

He'll have some help from guys like Brian Herrien, Elijah Holyfield, Zamir White and James Cook, but Swift should be the guy in Athens next season.

The favorite to start at tailback will be D'Andre Swift, who showed strong speed and big-play potential as a freshman despite never having more than 10 carries in a game this season. "You've got to make it happen, and they've got to believe that". On defense, John Atkins, Lorenzo Carter, Davin Bellamy, Malkom Parrish and Dominick Sanders will all be gone.

Some would think it would be mixed emotions for Hurts.

A "Hurts So Good" hashtag was born following his confident freshman season, and though he would position the squad back in the playoff picture, Saban felt that he needed a little more to stave off Kirby Smart.

Tagovailoa settled in and led Alabama back to a familiar place: the top of college football's food chain. Seu died of pneumonia in 2014, but his vision lived on.

LaVar Ball's company's rating is based on 32 complaints filed against the Big Baller Brand, failure to respond to 12 of those complaints and five complaints that still haven't been resolved, according to the Better Business Bureau website.

Michael Casagrande is an Alabama beat writer for the Alabama Media Group. "To the Polynesian community, I hope and pray that this is only the beginning", Mariota said as he accepted the award that night.

Tagovailoa let the world know with that touchdown pass in overtime to DeVonte Smith.

In the annual college football profile edition of FCA Magazine, a number of football players went on record to speak about their passion for Christ. As Tagovailoa chipped away at Georgia's lead, his family watched, with plenty of excitement, and no shortage of confidence.

Ever since the CFP committee decided who would make up the four-team playoff field in late December, controversy about who deserved the final spot has run rampant throughout the nation. The coaches can learn from this game.
