  • Who Nick Saban Put In The Top Four Of Amway Coaches Poll

The Crimson Tide heads to the College Football Playoff for the fifth year in a row, undoubtedly as the No. 1 seed and the favorite to win another national title.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will need approximately two weeks to recover from a procedure to help fix a high ankle sprain he suffered during the SEC Championship Game on Saturday night.

A Hollywood writer couldn't have come up with a better story Saturday as the No. 1 Crimson Tide came back from a 14-point deficit in the second half to defeat No. 4 Georgia 35-28 in the SEC championship game.

He promptly led two touchdown drives to give Alabama the lead with less than two minutes to play and earned his team the SEC title.

After the Bulldogs were stuffed on a fake punt near midfield, Hurts took matters into his own hands for the winning score.

The Saudi leader appeared to have no such awkwardness with Russian President Vladimir Putin , however. The announcement was made in the presence of the Crown Prince and the Mauritanian president.

"It's unprecedented to have a guy that won as many games as he won. start as a freshman, only lose a couple of games the whole time that he was the starter, and then all of a sudden he's not the quarterback", Saban said. And when he trotted off the field after the winning TD, Tagovailoa was one of the first teammates to greet him.

Alabama received 62 first-place votes. Alabama won a championship. The Alabama quarterback had a pair of interceptions, matching his total for the entire season, though he did spark the comeback with a 51-yard touchdown pass to Jaylen Waddle late in the third quarter, cutting Georgia's lead to 28-21.

Ohio State, Georgia and even UCF all felt deserving of a spot, but the selection committee obviously believed Oklahoma's resume was the best off that long list of contenders for the fourth and final entry into the playoff.

Somehow, Hurts didn't win the MVP of the game.

Some moments in college football are so unbelievable they seem right out of a movie.
