"We've always had a lot of faith in Jalen", Saban said.

Tagovailoa exited the game with an ankle injury midway through the fourth quarter. Midway through the fourth quarter with Alabama down by a touchdown, Tua went down with an ankle injury and would not return.

The junior threw for 82 yards and the game-tying touchdown on 7 of 9 passing, while also recording 28 yards and the go-ahead score on five rushing attempts. Saban pulled Hurts for freshman Tagovailoa in the second half, where the backup connected with DeVonta Smith on a 41-yard pass in overtime for a touchdown and the title.

The Alabama coach voted Clemson No. 1 and his Crimson Tide No. 2, according to the USA Today database of the ballots.

The adviser in question, Saud al-Qahtani, was sanctioned by the White House last month for his involvement in Khashoggi's death. Turkey handed it to the United States, Saudi Arabia , the United Kingdom - all those who wanted.


Afterward, they stood side-by-side on the podium in the middle of the field while Alabama received its SEC championship trophy.

Tagovailoa won the starting job in preseason practice and performed brilliantly during the regular season, throwing 36 touchdown passes with only two interceptions. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurt's incredible comeback against the Georgia Bulldogs was even better than that.

For the second time in less than a year, the Bulldogs squandered a double-digit lead to the Crimson Tide.

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