No one can question the College Playoff Selection Committee now for putting Alabama in the field as the No. 4 seed even after the 'Tide failed to make it to the SEC championship game.

Tide fan, Josh Pirtle said he's proud of Tagovailoa's character.

Alabama trailed Georgia 13-0 at half time and allowed an 80-yard touchdown pass from Jake Fromm to Mecole Hardman to fall behind 20-7 halfway through the third quarter. Bama quarterback Jalen Hurts could not pass the ball, and his team suffered from that throughout the game.

"I couldn't be prouder to be a Georgia Bulldog today", she said. "When you carry yourself that way it's important that you remember that you represent much more than yourself, and I think he understands it".

In the annual college football profile edition of FCA Magazine, a number of football players went on record to speak about their passion for Christ.

Nokia 6 (2018) Launch Expected in Early 2018
The Nokia 6 (2018) was yesterday found listed on Chinese regulatory site, TENAA , revealing some key specifications. Nearly a year after HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 6 , the 2018 model will be revealed this month.

Tagaovailoa was 14 of 24 for 166 yards after replacing Hurts, who completed just three of eight passes for 21 yards.

And DeVonta Smith, after Tagovailoa looked off the safety to create air space, snatched an over-the-shoulder ball for the game-winning, 41-yard reception in the 26-23 overtime victory.

"A lot of guys calling in saying they're just gonna enjoy it, they're happy, they're excited", Cubelic said.

What will be interesting to see is how Saban handles his newfound quarterback controversy.

"If you've got to go in, if your number's called, then you've got to do what you've got to do to give the team the best give the team the best opportunity to win", Tagovailoa said".

Marina chief sacked over junkets
This was the President's "unilateral decision" to crack down on officials' foreign travels. Duterte earlier directed to delay the identification of the axed government executive.

"I could tell which side was the Alabama side", he said, as transcribed by ForTheWin. "We were watching my phone and watching the game and just screaming the whole time".

"I am and he's got some little brothers too", Pirtle pointed out.

Saban's big gamble appeared to pay off when Tagovailoa connected with Calvin Ridley for a seven-yard touchdown to tie the game with 3:49 to play.

Finally, when a disastrous sack opened Alabama's overtime possession, Saban hoped that new playcaller Brian Daboll, a former Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator, could come up with something remotely positive to get his balky kicker in position to force a second extra period. Tagovailoa said he noticed Georgia was attempting to disguise a Cover-2 defense. The first player to congratulate Tagovailoa after the play? You might still get a Power 5 conference victor - Pac-12, anybody? - that's not as good as the third or fourth best team from another conference, but the debate would still be a lot of fun. There were so many moments, on third down and fourth down, when he made the game look as easy for Alabama as Deshaun Watson had made it look against Alabama last January. "Why would I hold on to what I think is my life when I really have nothing without Him?"
