Alabama Beats Georgia in Overtime to Win National Championship

Alabama’s Crimson Tide football team won its fifth national championship in a decade, besting Georgia late Monday evening, 26-23 in overtime. The victory came largely thanks to freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who came off the bench at halftime for No. 4 seed Alabama and led a comeback, tossing three touchdown passes to defeat the No. 3 seed Georgia Bulldogs.
