Alabama's winning touchdown should look awfully familiar to Georgia fans

Jackson said the reason he wanted to be at the homecoming was to remind the team of what's important, never stop grinding. Harris rushed for 1,000 yards or more in each of the last two seasons.

So a voter is left deciding with a choice, in a sense.

Tagovailoa passed for 166 and threw three TDs, including the game-winner in overtime, on Monday in only two quarters. After the sack, we just got up and took it to the next play.

Yesterday we gave our predictions on the big game, and while, we were pretty spot on.

In the end, the committee ruled in favor of Alabama, no doubt in part because of the Buckeyes' 31-point road loss to Iowa during the regular season.

And despite the defeat, they appear to have come away better than we could have ever imagined. "Hopefully we'll be able to continue to do that in the future".

This is another outgrowth of the unceasing playoff debate.

I used it when Oklahoma beat Ohio State and then subsequently fell to Iowa State and I kept the Sooners ahead of the Buckeyes. 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. "We do this every day in practice, we're built for it. We work hard", said Kendall Randolph. Once the second half started Georgia's defense had no answer for Tua Tagovailoa, while he effortlessly showed off his arm, his talents and his calm and collection style. There are a couple of coaches in football, Lombardi and Bear Bryant, who you don't even think of possibly having flaws. The Knights not only won their conference, but also beat Auburn in the Peach Bowl to become the only FBS team to go undefeated this season.

Saban's detractors view the Crimson Tide coach as someone who is so obsessed with winning championships that if he had to strike a deal with the devil to get them, he would. "Why would I hold on to what I think is my life when I really have nothing without Him?" Ryan hasn't played in a game, but after Monday night's he was overcome with emotion. But Nick Saban in college, and maybe Bill Belichick in the NFL, are two coaches who are so good, their names should be said in the same breath as those legends.

Baker Mayfield is gone. Smart was an assistant at Alabama for nine years before taking over at his alma mater Georgia in 2016 and recasting the program in a crimson hue.

Saban benched starting quarterback Jalen Hurts and replaced him with true freshman Tua Tagovailoa, who made the big plays Alabama needed in the second half and win the game in overtime by the final score of 26-23. What a game and what a fitting end to the College Football Season!

The ending to this game was like something out of a movie. He then came back on the next play and had one of his best throws of the game.

The lefty looked off the safety by glancing to his right, opening a one-on-one situation down the sideline for DeVonta Smith.

Central Florida (13-0), which elevated from 10th to sixth in the poll, received the other four first-place votes after completing its undefeated season. Now that narrative may slowly be shifting west.
