Nick Saban: 'we have two good quarterbacks on our team'

Prior to the Cavaliers' NBA Championship run in 2016, the city of Cleveland had gone without a national championship-winning sports team since the Browns won the NFL Championship in 1964 - a span of 52 years. The Crimson Tide took home the trophy, coming out on top 26-23 in a hard-fought battle.

One young fan even drew pictures for his two favorite players. The Bulldogs pounced early and jumped out to an early lead, which all seemed to change at halftime.

What is clear is Tagovailoa jump started the Alabama offense, and was the key factor in allowing the Crimson Tide to come back to win the title.

Tagovailoa almost helped win it in regulation as he drove the Tide to the Georgia 17 to set Pappanastos up for a game-winner, but the senior pulled the try wide left as time expired. Hurts finished the second half with only 21 passing yards and his 47 yards on the ground were the only thing that helped Bama get passed midfield. Overtime started out with Georgia getting on the board first with a field goal before a attractive pass from Tua Tagovailoa ended things with one final touchdown.

Tagovailoa learned - throwing a game-tying score on fourth down, with less than four minutes remaining - then stumbled again, drawing the ire of the coach who staked his season on the unproven Hawaiian.

Georgia built a 13-0 lead in the first half on the strength of excellent defense, and their own freshman quarterback playing well enough to get the job done. Georgia got the ball first in overtime.

"I couldn't be prouder of a group of players, especially the resiliency they showed in the game", Saban said.

FDI policy liberalised; fgn airlines allowed 49% stake in AI
In construction sector, the Government clarified that real-estate broking service eligible for 100% FDI under automatic route. Earlier also 100 per cent FDI was allowed in the segment, but it required government approval.

After Monday night, there's no doubt who the starting quarterback for the Crimson Tide is looking into the future. It would spark greater interest during the regular season since more teams would have a chance to make the playoffs.

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

While the Tide would allow more points to Georgia in the National Championship Game, the defense would step up multiple times in the second half to pave the way for a remarkable comeback.

We'll see what happens in the offseason.

But midway through the quarter, Georgia's Jake Fromm was the young quarterback set for stardom, having completed an 80-yard touchdown pass to put the Bulldogs up, 20-7, and looking like he'd become the second true freshman ever to lead his team to a national title - an honor Hurts failed to secure previous year. Both squads brought their A-game. He graduated from Georgia and his wife did too but his son now attends the University of Alabama so they're a house divided. Meet America's new household name: Tua Tagovailoa.

A college football season that was riddled with chaos and excitement ended Monday night with a fitting conclusion.
