(WTVY) -- After a shaky first half trailing 13-0 going into the break, Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban pulls starting quarterback Jalen Hurts for true freshman Tua Tagovailoa.

From there, Tagovailoa turns it on and throws three touchdowns including the game winner to Devonta Smith in Overtime to beat Georgia 26-23 to win the National Championship.

Nick Saban ties legendary Crimson Tide Head Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant with six National Championships in the Associated Press Poll era.

Freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa named Offensive MVP, Da'Ron Payne named Defensive MVP.
