The first play of Alabama's next possession saw Tua fire a deep ball just past the outstretched hands of Calvin Ridley. Hurts had gone just 3-of-8 passing for 21 yards in the first half while running for 47 yards, and Alabama's offense looked completely stagnant.
"If you've got to go in, if your number's called, then you've got to do what you've got to do to give the team the best placement...to give the team the best opportunity to win", Tagovailoa said".
This one was nothing like the others. It's a testament to the relentless machine Saban has built. Wisconsin played a high school schedule, but only lost once, to Ohio State in a close game. "No disrespect to Jalen, but ..."
The touchdown came just moments after Georgia took a 23-20 lead to start overtime with a 51-yard field goal.
The Alabama dynasty continued, but Smart said Georgia will contend for more titles.
ATLANTA -With freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa seated to his left during a Tuesday morning press conference in Atlanta, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said the team has "two good quarterbacks". He ran right by cornerback Malkom Parrish, who clearly thought he had help from safety Dominick Sanders, and hauled in a pass that was delivered in stride as he glided all alone into the end zone.
But remember, Saban had to win his six national championships in a much tougher era than Bryant, who captured three in the 1960s when there were no scholarship limitations and his '73 title was split among the major wire services with Notre Dame. With that in mind, it will make for a less chaotic National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb, 7. Meyer has three. Clemson's Dabo Swinney and Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher each have one.
The Bulldogs won the SEC Championship before walking off with a thrilling Rose Bowl victory.
Rodrigo Blankenship, the Georgia kicker who's gained attention as much for the glasses he wears on the field as for his kicks, came up clutch for the Bulldogs to start overtime. The Hawaii native passed for two touchdowns and managed 152 total yards of offense in regulation.
Key play: Jake Fromm's 16-yard pass to Terry Godwin at the 3 put the Bulldogs in position to score that huge touchdown that closed the half.
No coach in the history of college football has ever dominated a decade like Nick Saban.
This game will be remembered for Saban's decision to change quarterbacks trailing 13-0.
Georgia started overtime with Fromm making a freshman mistake, taking a 13-yard sack on third down.
Alabama basketball dominated South Carolina 76-62 at home to snap a two-game losing streak. It's a nice problem to have.
"Better Business Bureau is as outdated as the Yellow Pages", he told ESPN.
"Every team wants to be successful", he said. "He won them with Joe Namath dropping back throwing when people never, ever did it. I just think that, for his time, he impacted the game and had more success than anybody ever could". "I enjoy the competition". It doesn't really matter, though. But even with left tackle Jonah Williams exiting with an injury, Tagovailoa proceeded to lead Alabama to its first points on his second drive. A possible QB controversy between Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa looms and we're guessing either Damien Harris or Bo Scarbrough will return for a senior season while wide receiver Jerry Jeudy should take a step forward.
"I think it was a good move [Hurts] was benched", Rossiter said.
"I could not believe it".
