Everyone offers condolences after another Georgia heartbreaker vs. Alabama

Everyone offers condolences after another Georgia heartbreaker vs. Alabama”

The Crimson Tide is headed back to the College Football Playoff, looking for its second straight national title and the sixth of the last decade under Saban. Hurts calmly guided the No. 1 Crimson Tide (13-0) to a game-tying touchdown with a 10-yard pass to Jerry Jeudy, capping a 16-play, 80-yard drive that consumed more than 7 minutes.

Eleven months later, against the same opponent, in the same stadium, facing a similar situation, the tables were turned.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts (2) speaks to fans after the Southeastern Conference championship NCAA college football game between Georgia and Alabama, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Atlanta.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence added two touchdown passes to Tee Higgins, helping Clemson to become the first team to win four consecutive ACC title games.

"Hopefully by the time we start practicing again, Tua will be back on the field and ready to go", Saban said.

"I'm so proud of this guy", Saban said as Hurts joined him for the interview. I can't even tell you.

This time, it was Hurts who bailed out the Crimson Tide. While this one didn't end with the suddenness of that national title game, it hurt just as bad.

Hurts could have transferred to a school of his choosing this offseason but he stuck with Alabama despite knowing he'd be the backup quarterback.

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is the victor of The Athletic's Heisman Straw Poll, ending Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's season-long reign atop the poll by a point margin of 96-71. The Heisman Trophy candidate was helped off the field and didn't return to the game.

Kyler Murray erupted for 379 yards and three touchdowns and the fifth-ranked Sooners avenged their lone loss of the season by knocking out the No. 9 Longhorns in the Big 12 title game in Arlington, Texas.
