Congratulations to the Georgia Bulldogs on Winning the National College Football Playoff

“You kicked out butt in the fourth quarter ... God bless you.”

Yes they did, Coach Saban, scoring 20 unanswered in the 4th, including an 80 yard pick six to go up 15 with 0:54 remaining. 

At this point, with the outcome no longer in doubt, Georgia QB Stetson Bennett — a former walk-on who ran the scout team in preparation for the 2018 title game — was overcome with tears of joy on the sidelines. 

The first half was very low scoring, just 9-6 Alabama (all field goals) — but both teams found their offensive firepower in the second half, especially after Georgia blocked a field goal with just over 3 minutes remaining in the 3rd. Next play, 67 yard run to the 13, then a few plays later, the first touchdown of the game.

Full game highlights — skip ahead to around 3:30 for the bulk of the action.
