Championship Saturday is over in college football.

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.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart understands this, and while 90 percent of the battle will be out-coaching college football legend Nick Saban, Smart needs to make sure his team is mentally ready for their toughest challenge of the season.

Tagovailoa won the starting job outright heading into this season and performed brilliantly before Saturday, throwing 36 touchdown passes with only two interceptions.

Tua Tagovailoa is awesome, he's going to win the Heisman Trophy, and if Alabama gets a win here, it's going to be because he is playing well. Alabama got away with the win and they're lucky to have two high-caliber quarterbacks at their disposal.

For the 15-minute part of practice that was open to reporters the Crimson Tide did nothing but stand around, talk and a few players threw around a football.

The final regular-season edition of the Coaches Poll was released shortly before the final College Football Playoff Rankings, and to the surprise of no one, it closely resembled what the CFP Selection Committee released Sunday afternoon.

Jalen Hurts spent most of the season watching from the sideline, cheering on the guy who took his job and hoping for one more chance to lead the Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama might not be able to completely shut the Sooners down, but the Tide will get enough stops in the end.

Georgia's Jake Fromm threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns, while Tagovailoa was only 10 of 25 for 164 yards. That gave Alabama a short field to work with on its winning drive. He would watch as Tagovailoa led the Crimson Tide to a comeback win and a national title. They lost the Orange Bowl in 2015 and the Rose Bowl in 2018, both of those being semifinal games.
