Nick Saban got choked up in postgame reflection on Jalen Hurts

Nick Saban got choked up in postgame reflection on Jalen Hurts

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence added two touchdown passes to Tee Higgins, helping Clemson to become the first team to win four consecutive ACC title games.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will have surgery on his right ankle and recovery is expected to take about two weeks.

The Crimson Tide is headed back to the College Football Playoff, looking for its second straight national title and the sixth of the last decade under Saban. Alabama has won the national championship in two of the last three years, and the Tide deservedly opened their game against the Sooners as very big favorites.

Georgia can make a pretty good case for the playoff, too, but the Bulldogs will likely get left out. The Heisman Trophy front runner was having arguably his worst performance of the season, however, throwing just one touchdown and two interceptions.

Afterward in an on-field interview, Nick Saban got emotional and choked up while talking about Hurts. He's quickly built Georgia into a national powerhouse, but he keeps coming up short against his ex-boss.

This time, it was Hurts who bailed out the Crimson Tide. It was reminiscent of Tagovailoa replacing Hurts at halftime during that national championship game and carrying the team to a victory. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurt's incredible comeback against the Georgia Bulldogs was even better than that.

The final regular-season edition of the Coaches Poll was released shortly before the final College Football Playoff Rankings, and to the surprise of no one, it closely resembled what the CFP Selection Committee released Sunday afternoon.

Championship Saturday is over in college football. Alabama might not be able to completely shut the Sooners down, but the Tide will get enough stops in the end. They lost the Orange Bowl in 2015 and the Rose Bowl in 2018, both of those being semifinal games.
