The Alabama Crimson Tide came back to defeat the Georgia Bulldogs in overtime, 26-23, to win the college football national championship.
Alabama’s win Monday night is the program’s 11th national championship and fifth since 2009.
The Crimson Tide won the game in overtime behind freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver DeVonta Smith.
Tagovailoa took the helm at quarterback after halftime, replacing Jalen Hurts who was mostly ineffective during his time playing. The Crimson Tide were down 13-0 to the Bulldogs at the half.
Tagovailoa led Alabama to the victory with three touchdown passes, while erasing a 13-point deficit.
