Tagovailoa seems destined to quickly become one of of the nation's best passers.
Against two-deep coverage, Tagavailoa looked right before firing a flawless pass in stride to DeVonta Smith down the left sideline for a 41-yard TD to trigger a mad celebration. Freshman Najee Harris led the rushers with 70 yards on 13 carries.
The ground-and-pound offense at Alabama is officially dead. The Tide has won 16 straight home openers.
Hurts threw for just 21 yards in the first half. Junior Keith Holcombe had a career-high nine tackles and a pass breakup.
Saban previously served as the coach of the Miami Dolphins going 15-17 over two seasons
Nick Saban wins one title and moves on to figuring out how to get the next. He responded with a 41-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman DeVonta Smith to touch off the latest confetti-dripping celebration for Alabama a year after absorbing a last-second loss to Clemson in the championship game. It was the most points Alabama scored against the Rebels.
When he took the field in the second half, he was impossible not to root for. Alabama improved to 69-11 in 80 games as the No. 1-ranked team in the AP poll since 1936. Arians admitted that it wouldn't surprise him if Saban, 66, were to go to the NFL.
Saban now has more titles than all other active FBS coaches combined (five).
Hurts certainly handled the demotion with class, saying after the game: "We just won the national championship".
Arjun Atwal turns to Tiger Woods for advice before EurAsia Cup
The Asian team, captained by Arjun Atwal of India, includes three of the top five ranked players on the Asian Tour. It feels quite big for me, especially when I haven't played that many (team events) before.
The former 5-star from Hawaii took the shotgun snap, held the safety on the hash by looking right and then delivered a ideal 41-yard strike down the left sideline to fellow freshman DeVonta Smith.
Alabama stayed unbeaten with a 24-10 win over LSU.
Suddenly, Alabama was throwing deep balls and opening up the playbook, something they didn't do at all with Jalen. Tagovailoa was wild, raw and perfectly unafraid of Geogria's touted defense (or Saban's wrath).
From there, the two quarterbacks developed a friendship.
Fashion takes political turn as Elie Saab praises Gal Gadot
It was blocked by the government because of the star's nationality and her support for Israel's army, it was reported at the time. The Instagram page for Saab's brand posted a photo of Gadot in the gown on Wednesday, calling her "flawless".
Pappanastos set up for what could have a game-winning field goal, but the 36-yard kick sailed wide left and helped send the game to overtime. Then a field goal, and another.
Monday night's National Championship game between Alabama and Georgia in the College Football Playoffs displayed all the expected traits of the strong, calculated and daring leadership Nick Saban has brought and continues to bring to college football in this era.
Tagovailoa played sparingly behind Hurts before entering Monday's game against Georgia in the second half to throw three touchdown passes and rally Alabama to a 26-23 victory in overtime.
Derrius Guice: Declares for 2018 NFL Draft
Fittingly, the social media aficionado made his announcement official with a Twitter video. Guice ran for 276 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries.
Mostly forgotten is the fact Broncos coach Chris Petersen made consecutive gutsy calls in what remains one of the most exciting games in collegiate lore.
