Alabama's gutty comeback gives Saban his sixth title
13 January, 2018, 05:32 | Author: Brenda Erickson
Saban, engulfed in a blanket of well-wishers, friends and media, acknowledged thousands of Crimson Tide fans in disbelief about what they had just witnessed. "I couldn't ask for anything better". In fact, the sophomore was the first to run out and greet the freshman after Tagovailoa tossed the first of his three touchdown passes in the middle of the third quarter to finally get the Tide on the scoreboard. With the win against Georgia head coach - and former Alabama assistant - Kirby Smart, Saban improves to 12-0 against his former staffers in his tenure as Alabama's head coach. Alabama's defense shut down Nick Chubb, who finished the day with 18 carries for 25 yards. After the half, it was all Alabama as Tua Tagovailoa was given the nod to lead the squad in the second half; and lead he certainly did.
Then the game went into overtime, and Georgia took the lead with a remarkable 51-yard field goal.Right after that, Georgia sacked Tagovailoa for a 16-yard loss. What a battle, what a game and what a fitting finish once again. While the decision on who will be the 2018 starting quarterback looms over next season, anyone in Tuscaloosa can tell you it's a good problem to have. Completions that looked easy and seamless in the first half, were dropped and swatted down in the second. They were getting shut down at the line of scrimmage with their QB running game and their zone read - and also, they had no passing game. The first-team All-Pac-12 selection was second on the Cardinal in tackles with 99. They've set the standard for UGA football and we will be back.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa throws a pass during the second half against Georgia in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T on January 8, 2018 in Atlanta. In both games, Georgia lost. He graduated from Georgia and his wife did too but his son now attends the University of Alabama so they're a house divided. They were too strong on defense and showed some heart late in the game, which seemed to be the deciding factor.
