The tale of two halves for Alabama on Monday night ended with a bang — Tua Tagovailoa’s 41-yard TD toss on second down in overtime to beat Georgia, 26-23, in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
The Crimson Tide trailed 13-0 at halftime, but Nick Saban inserted Tagovailoa as starting quarterback to start the second half and it worked to perfection as the freshman quarterback brought Alabama all the way back and had it in position to win in regulation. But Andy Pappanastos missed a potential game-winning field goal on the final play of the game that moved the game to overtime.
Needless to say, Alabama fans were elated with another national title.
