This is what sports is all about. The pass. The catch. The game-winner...the moment history unfolded on the field in Atlanta as two freshman for Alabama connected on a 41-yard touchdown pass in overtime to give them an epic national championship victory, 26-23, after trailing at halftime by 13 points to Georgia.
"Touchdown Alabama! Touchdown Alabama!"
You'll never forget that play.
The win also marked the 17th national championship for the Crimson Tide and sixth for the legendary head coach (his fifth in Tuscaloosa) who tied the record for most championships in college football with another coaching legend in Alabama. A comeback and statement all once. The moment gave a back-up freshman quarterback a chance to make history in the second: 125 yards (13 of 23) and two touchdowns. The pass. The catch. The win. And plenty of Alabama football history.
