Tua good: Alabama wins national title with overtime touchdown pass

Bo Scarbrough appeared to yell ‘F-k Trump!’ before the game

Tua Tagovailoa #13 of the Alabama Crimson Tide celebrates a six yard touchdown pass during the third quarter against the Georgia Bulldogs in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 8, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. And Georgia lost it on a touchdown that looks eerily similar to the one Alabama scored on Monday. But instead, Tagovailoa hit DeVonta Smith with a 41-yard touchdown pass to win the game on the next play.

"A lot of guys calling in saying they're just gonna enjoy it, they're happy, they're excited", Cubelic said.

You can pencil Alabama in next year's College Football Playoff and I'm not going to bet against them not winning it all because the math says the odds are ever in their favor.

When his young star quarterback got off to a lousy start, Saban switched to an even younger one, true freshman Tua Tagovailoa, and came climbing out of a couple of 13-point holes.

Trailing 23-20 in overtime, Tagovailoa went back to pass on Alabama's first play.

Our teams weren't so hot when I was at Sprayberry, but that's just the way it goes sometimes. I'm proud of what we did this year - a big turnaround from year one to year two.

While a refocused Alabama defense continually frustrated Jake Fromm and the Georgia offense, Tagovailoa kept punching away at the Bulldogs lead.

His wife and former Chief Minister of Bihar Rabri Devi has chosen to stay back in Patna when the punishment is announced. The Special CBI Court in Ranchi deferred the pronouncement of quantum of sentence in the fodder scam case for tomorrow.

"We know what it takes to get here", Nauta said. "The kid's a stud", Mariota said. "I thought he could do it better".

"I don't call the plays, I don't control that", Hardman said.

Passas told The AP in a telephone interview that Tagovailoa began attending the football camp at Saint Louis when he was 9 years old and immediately started throwing with the senior players, including Mariota. He was the most valuable player in the Elite 11 quarterback competition and at Nike's "The Opening". "We all knew that he could do it". "That's what our school breeds", Passas said.

Saban's big gamble appeared to pay off when Tagovailoa connected with Calvin Ridley for a seven-yard touchdown to tie the game with 3:49 to play.

On Monday night, with the nation watching, Tua Tagovailoa became a legend. "It's a life-changing moment for him and his family in just a matter of 35 minutes of football".

Saban explained after the game that he felt the offense needed what Tagovailoa could provide when he chose to move away from Hurts at halftime. "We said a year ago, 'Don't waste the feeling.' They sure didn't, the way they played tonight". He had two atrocious misses in the game, including a 36-yard chip shot that would've won the game at the end of regulation.

After raving about his hands, speed, route running capabilities and clutch mentality, I was able to see it all unfold for myself during a session of drills in the press box.
