According to freshman quarterback Jake Fromm, making it to the title game "definitely sets the standard for Georgia football".
Austin Griswold, an Army ROTC cadet at the University of Alabama, met the commander in chief during the College Football Playoff championship game between Alabama and the University of Georgia on January 8. The technology - with the battery, transmitter, antennas and cabling stuffed inside the markers - was previously tested last month at the Celebration Bowl.
The play was a simple four verticals, where every receiver takes off. Tagovailoa, as the backup, wasn't going to be entrusted with anything more exotic than that.

In all frankness, I was pulling for the Bulldogs, but mostly for an entertaining game, which we all got.
After the big game, Tua Tagovailoa, the Alabama freshman quarterback who helped rally his team to a big win, found his family and prayed.
"We have a really good chemistry of coaches and players". We recruit great guys here and great players. "Who would've thought I would've ever been here right now in this moment".

Alabama head Coach Nick Saban is presented the trophy after a 24-7 victory against Washington in the Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2016.
This year, though, it was Alabama's time to squeeze into the last playoff spot. The numbers can be debated, but for Saban to match Bryant in this day and age with a program that went through as many injuries as Alabama did makes him the unquestioned king of college football.

Passas said that more than seeing Tagovailoa on national TV or throwing the game-winning TD pass, he was moved by the way Tagovailoa reacted to the win, running to embrace his family after the game. Instead of going straight to their vaunted ground attack, Georgia mixed in enough passing plays to keep the Crimson Tide on their heels early.More news: Why to Keeping Eye on Chevron Corporation (CVX), Voya Financial, Inc.
