Watch: Alabama wins national championship in overtime with 41-yard touchdown pass

It was not easy to watch, as Georgia had a 13-point lead twice.

"I've said this for many, many years now when I get asked this question", Saban said Tuesday.

We have two that have already put the scarlet and gray at No. 4, so it's only right that USA TODAY tabbed Ohio State as the No. 3-ranked team in the country heading into 2018 to make it two for No. 3 and two for No. 4.

One play doesn't decide the outcome of a game.

The Tide have been dealing with that kind of stuff for the past decade. No one could discern from Trump's actions at the game that he was any less mentally unstable than any of the rest of us.

Jake Fromm will be back and challenged by Justin Fields.

"I had people calling me at halftime saying the game was over", Thompson said.

As a true freshman, Eason started the final 12 games of the 2016 season after replacing Greyson Lambert in the opener. For all the talk of a title being part of Georgia's unquestioned destiny, it was the Alabama dynasty that carried the day. Payne had a dominant postseason that included an interception and his first career touchdown reception. Saban stomped down the sidelines, ripping his headset off, and screaming at no one in particular.

"It's really difficult to do", said Palet, also a Saban-trained passer, "because with your eyes you have to get the safety to believe you're throwing to the other side of the field, even though in your head you know you're coming back to the receiver".

Among them is how to finish - whether it was the game in general after twice holding a 13-point leads, 13-0 at halftime and 20-7 late in the third quarter. "I mean, he won championships running the wishbone".

The game, which President Donald Trump attended, was filled with both phenomenal athletics and tremendous adversity.

The New Year's Six bowls and championship game drew an average of 17 million viewers, the most in four years of the format. Expect the same debate next season if the Knights don't miss a beat under new coach Josh Heupel (which seems unlikely if only due to the rarity with which undefeated seasons come about), or if Memphis keeps rolling like it did in 2017.

Surprising no Alabama football fan, it was confirmed on Thursday Minkah Fitzpatrick, Da'Ron Payne, Calvin Ridley, Bo Scarbrough and Ronnie Harrison will pursue NFL early entry opportunities.

During his time at Antioch High School, Harris racked up 7,948 yards on the ground, which is the fourth-highest total in California high school football history, according to the University of Alabama.

"From the last plane to the last bullet, to the last minute, to the last man, we fight!"

"Give them credit, but I think everybody can see that Georgia's going to be a force to be reckoned with", Smart said.

Representatives from two of the five major conferences - the Big Ten and Pac-12 - weren't invited to the party. If you expand to an eight-team playoff, the regular season loses a lot of luster. Georgia will try again for its first since 1980. The Buckeyes will have to survive three difficult road games to stay in CFP contention in 2018: TCU (in Arlington, Texas), Penn State and Michigan State. "So, you know, thank God for that, and I'd just like to thank my teammates and coach Saban for giving me the opportunity".

One play later, Saban was "never happier", as Tagovailoa fired the forever 41-yard touchdown pass into the arms of DeVonta Smith.

While it would take a while to take a formal poll of each Alabama player, Fromm and the Bulldogs definitely impressed Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.
