'Seattle' was name of Alabama's championship-winning TD play

'Seattle' was name of Alabama's championship-winning TD play

To the bench went two-year starter Jalen Hurts, who delivered an uneven first half after his effort against Clemson in the semifinals was self-described as not great.

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.

"This was the most average team Nick ever won with".

"This is only the beginning for Georgia", Martin Davis said.

In the national title game, Alabama's coaches proved to be the championship-caliber adjusters. Now Alabama gives us a game in Atlanta that felt like one of those college football movies out of the past, like "Navy Blue and Gold". When the game mattered the most, Saban inserted his true freshman signal caller into the game for a spark.

When Alabama's kicker missed two standard-range field goals, including what should have been the game-winner in regulation, Saban forfeited his usual bonus of stellar special-teams play but overcame that, too.

"I drew this one for Sony Michel to show my support and this one for Mecole Hardman Jr.", Dylan Davis said. "But I have no point of reference". "It's what we what we want to see". Of course, "only sixth" maybe relative here, as UCF fans are likely a bit excited that they got some recognition in the AP Poll when they hadn't gotten much all season in the College Football Playoff rankings.

"We just all knew", Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley said of Tagovailoa. It's a horror movie, played on an endless loop.

Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian called "Seattle" after Tagovailoa opened Alabama's overtime possession by taking a 16-yard loss on a sack. That looked to give Georgia a chance, and the Bulldogs scored a field goal. It is hard to pinpoint what has happened since then, but there remains serious questions about Hurts ability to move the ball downfield. Completions that looked easy and seamless in the first half, were dropped and swatted down in the second.

Brady refutes notion of rift within Patriots
Since he arrived at Alabama in 2007, his teams have won an unprecedented five national championships in the past nine seasons. On Belichick: "I have a great relationship with Coach Belichick". "I have never denied anybody anything in regards to TB12".

On Monday night, it was Tua Tagovailoa who would find Smith streaking down the Georgia sideline.

Smart told the players in the locker room after the game that he loved them and was proud of what they did this season after going 8-5 in his first year as coach, tight end Isaac Nauta said. But the freshman on offense were the stars of the night, giving life to a team that seemed dead in the water at half. But this was the kid's movie.

That 26-23 overtime win over Georgia was nearly too much to process, even for Nick Saban, who when it was over actually sputtered "I've never been happier in my life".

He was saved in the extra period by Tagovailoa, a dual-threat quarterback from Ewa Beach, Hawaii, who played at the same school as Tennessee Titans quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor Marcus Mariota.

The Georgia Bulldogs put up a good fight, but in the end, it was Alabama's defense that really made the difference.

"We were able to install cameras in each of the four markers, and really in particular between the 25 yard lines where the team areas are to have the marker cam that works right in that area, we get to see things that we don't normally see there", said Ed Placey, ESPN's senior coordinating producer.

"He's good for stuff like this and he has the "it" factor", Hurts said. I think he helped him in every way.

Hurts had only thrown one interception all season. However, it was in the fourth quarter that Alabama hit high gear and started functioning at near-peak efficiency. "I feel like people, they'll remember this Georgia team".
