With the game tied and just a minute to go, Hurts broke through the defense and powered into the endzone.

In last season's national title game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, between these same two teams, Tua Tagovailoa replaced an ineffective Hurts at the start of the second half with Alabama trailing Georgia 13-0.

Enter Hurts, who led Alabama to the national title game as a freshman but lost the starting job to Tagovailoa. "That is the ultimate compliment I can give them" said Saban on Saturday.

But a loss, especially a lopsided one, could knock the Bulldogs out of the No. 4 spot, as Oklahoma and Ohio State are now breathing down Georgia's neck for that last ticket into the playoff. The Heisman Trophy candidate was helped off the field and didn't return to the game.

"I've probably never been more proud of a player than Jalen", an emotional coach Nick Saban said moments after the triumph.


This time, it was Hurts who bailed out the Crimson Tide.

This time, Jalen Hurts was the quarterback who came off the bench to rescue Alabama. While this one didn't end with the suddenness of that national title game, it hurt just as bad.

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

Georgia's Jake Fromm threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns, while Tagovailoa was only 10 of 25 for 164 yards.

Call it "rat poison" - call it cheese in a mouse trap, but either way, there's likely some mind games going on in the final Coaches Poll vote for the two Playoff coaches with a ballot. The opponent could be Oklahoma, Ohio State or maybe even Georgia. However, many believed Tagovailoa, a former 5-star prospect, was the better option after excelling during limited opportunities during his first season in Tuscaloosa, amid the starter's struggles throughout the 2017 campaign, prior to the CFB Playoff title game.
