Alabama turns to freshman QB Tagovailoa in championship game

12 January 2018

To add another championship to the greatest dynasty college football has ever seen, Alabama turned to its quarterback of the future, and Tua Tagovailoa proved that his time is now. He propelled Nick Saban to his sixth national championship, his fifth with the Crimson Tide. "The two lower seed teams win, the one team that everyone debated shouldn't be in, actually goes on to win it".

Alabama's defense gave Tagovailoa another chance.

Michel rushed for a game-high 98 yards on 14 carries, averaging 7.0 yards per carry, but after gaining 10, 5 and 13 yards on the first three plays of the fourth quarter, he touched the ball just once the rest of the game. During the first half of Monday night's game, it worked.

So 2018 begins with the kind of game and the kind of memory that we had throughout 2017.

That doesn't mean his entire performance was bad, however.

A little less than a year after the Atlanta Falcons blew a 25-point lead and lost in overtime to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, there was more pain for numerous local fans. These hypothetical questions will continue to play a part in how the CFP is perceived, even when it is expanded to eight teams.

Overall, Brown didn't have his best performance against the Bulldogs. Henry Ruggs III caught a 6-yard touchdown pass. Najee Harris leapfrogged juniors Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough to take critical fourth-quarter handoffs, leading the team with 64 yards on six carries. The drive ended in a crucial field goal from Pappanastos. In any case, the play was later unveiled on Twitter, and University of Washington quarterback Jake Browning couldn't believe it.

Hurts did not sulk on the sideline and Saban said he was an asset to Tagovailoa during the game. A designed quarterback run on first down. Imagine if Alabama replaced its SoCon game in the third week of November with a game against UCF.

Da'Ron Payne should be given most of the credit for Fromm's second interception of the game.

"At that point you really need to force yourself to re-assess the situation", he said.

Alabama and ESPN both have a lot to celebrate.

Terrell Lewis, who was only playing in his third game back since Week 1, came up with a huge sack in overtime.

Georgia had the ball first in overtime, and Rodrigo Blankenship kicked a 51-yard field goal.

"If you've got to go in, if your number's called, then you've got to do what you've got to do to give the team the best placement...to give the team the best opportunity to win", Tagovailoa said". It doesn't really matter, though. Tagovailoa played with poise and the momentum shifted towards the Tide.

"Jeremy left and a guy came over and started talking to them".

Alabama would eventually tie the game, 20-20, and push the contest into overtime.
