What a game and thrilling finish! It was tied at 20 during regulation time and Georgia scored first in OT with a field goal then Tua Tagovailoa threw the game-winning touchdown in overtime and the Alabama Crimson Tide won the National Championship 26-23. Alabama trailed at halftime by 13 points, but switched from Jalen Hurts to freshman Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback who led the comeback and threw an amazing 41-yard pass to DeVonta Smith in overtime. It’s Coach Nick Saban’s sixth career national championship and his second of the playoff era. This is Alabama’s 17th National Chmapionship while Georgia is still looking for their second title after winning it all in 1980. Check out the video and the poor cameraman looking for the perfect pic and got run over during the TD celebration!
