The College Football National Championship last night will go down as one of the best games in history as it took an extra session for the Alabama Crimson Tide to defeat the Georgia Bulldogs 26-23. Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban made an interesting move at halftime when Georgia went into the locker room with a 13-0 lead. Saban replaced starting quarterback Jalen Hurts from freshman Tua Tagovailoa who came in and threw three touchdown passes on 14 of 24 passing for 166 yards. The Tide have now won 5 national championships since Nick Saban took over in 2009.
