Twitter explodes after Jalen Hurts leads 'Bama comeback win over Georgia

The SEC title game took a different path. Georgia put a beating on Tagovailoa, who was picked off twice, spent much of his spare time in the medical tent and was largely ineffective as the Bulldogs built a pair of two-touchdown leads. Last year, it was Tagovailoa coming in for Hurts, but the script was flipped this year, and the result was the same.

"I know at Alabama, there's always an opportunity to win", Hurts said.

The Sooners will now await word on if they have made their way into the College Football Playoff following the loss of fourth-ranked Georgia on Saturday. "All year, I waited on my opportunity". "(I) worked hard this week with my teammates and we found a way to get it done today".

"We've got a lot of respect for the team that we're getting ready to play, no question about that", Riley said. "I'm so happy. Happy for everybody".

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts (2) speaks to fans after the Southeastern Conference championship NCAA college football game between Georgia and Alabama, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Atlanta. Murray had six first-place votes, while Tagovailoa had four. "He did a fantastic job".

Smart's impassioned speech here makes me want to run through a wall for him, and I don't even play for the team!

Saban was one of two coaches to vote Clemson as the No. 1 team in the nation ahead of the Crimson Tide in the final Coaches Poll released on Sunday, according to USA Today.

Many expected Hurts to transfer and take his talents elsewhere, yet he remained.

He would watch as Tagovailoa led the Crimson Tide to a comeback win and a national title.

Now the attention will turn to the health of Tagovailoa and his status for the College Football Playoff.
