That set up a second and twenty-six, the play called Seattle, and did Tua deliver, a 41-yard touchdown to another freshman Devonta Smith.
Hurts did not sulk on the sideline and Saban said he was an asset to Tagovailoa during the game. "He's built for stuff like this". "I pray for peace, I just pray, asking God, let your will be done in me, and the rest will follow". But the Crimson Tide reached the CFP National Championship for the third straight season, and they'll be equally good next season as Nick Saban's "Process" continues.
But Fromm's next pass bounced off an Alabama player's helmet and into the hands of Raekwon Davis, and Saban kept his trust in his own true freshman. Two years ago, it was using O.J Howard against Clemson even though he barely got targeted all season.
But Saban has had little time and inclination to ponder those accomplishments. "Why would I not", he said. "There's lots of highs and lows". He had played in eight games this season. These kids really responded the right way. "I definitely take all the hard work and use that as a new standard". And boy was Smith's catch a big one.

Breakdown: "The 2017 version of the Alabama dynasty probably wasn't as talented and might not have as many future National Football League stars as the previous ones".
Georgia took a 23-20 lead on a 51-yard field goal by Rodrigo Blankenship in overtime, and the final blur unfolded in just two plays. It was third-and-7 from the Alabama 47-yard line and Georgia's defense was playing well. Tagovailoa and Najee Harris were five-star recruits, but they entered the night as freshman backups. Thus far, Georgia has had nine players enroll early in the 2018 recruiting class: quarterback Justin Fields, running back Zamir White, offensive tackle Cade Mays, outside linebacker Brenton Cox, offensive guard Trey Hill, receiver Kearis Jackson, offensive lineman Warren Ericson, defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt, and cornerback Divaad Wilson. "You've got to make it happen, and they've got to believe that". Facing fourth-and-goal from the 7, down seven, the left-hander moved to his left and zipped a pass through traffic that hit Calvin Ridley in the numbers for the tying score with 3:49 left in the fourth quarter. The freshman completed 14 of 24 passes for 166 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, and he rushed for 27 yards. But most first year players sit or play on special teams. "We fell short today, and I think guys that are coming back understand what it's going to take plus more to get back here". "Smitty was wide open".
But in this game, 'Bama played as the underdog in the second half, trailing 13-0 at halftime.
Tagovailoa led Alabama down the field on his second drive as quarterback, displaying the pocket presence and arm strength people talked about, but had not seen in a true, big-game moment.

But those opportunities came mostly in garbage time of blowout wins, even though Tagovailoa carried a reputation as the next great Hawaiian.
"I don't know how Coach Saban found me all the way in Hawaii from Alabama", Tagovailoa said. It would spark greater interest during the regular season since more teams would have a chance to make the playoffs.
University of Alabama football head coach Nick Saban knew he signed a special class of wide receivers in 2017, but seeing how the College Football Playoff National Championship Game ended, it is confirmed that this group stands to arguably be the best of his tenure.
