With the game tied and just a minute to go, Hurts broke through the defense and powered into the endzone.

Enter Hurts, who led Alabama to the national title game as a freshman but lost the starting job to Tagovailoa.

"All year, I've kind of been waiting on my opportunity", Hurts said.

Meanwhile, Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide struggled in the SEC Championship Game vs. Georgia.

But a loss, especially a lopsided one, could knock the Bulldogs out of the No. 4 spot, as Oklahoma and Ohio State are now breathing down Georgia's neck for that last ticket into the playoff.

But in a script better suited for a Walt Disney movie, backup Jalen Hurts came off the bench to rally Alabama from 28-21 down to the victory.

After the game, Alabama coach Nick Saban discussed his quarterback's performance with CBS' Jamie Erdahl during his postgame interview and seemed to be choked up, showing a rare side of emotion. One impressive Saban trend that stands out when looking at this game is that Alabama is 5-1 against the spread when playing on a neutral field as a favorite of 10.5 to 14 points.

This was another galling loss for Saban's former assistant, Kirby Smart.

This time, it was Hurts who bailed out the Crimson Tide.

The Sooners will now await word on if they have made their way into the College Football Playoff following the loss of fourth-ranked Georgia on Saturday. "They've been doing it for a lot of years". But Hurts took control of the offense and lifted Alabama, certain to be the top seed in the College Football Playoff.

QB Kyler Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns this season. The opponent could be Oklahoma, Ohio State or maybe even Georgia. Since then, the Bulldogs have looked really good on both sides of the football, beating three ranked teams in five games and allowing just over 18 points per game.

Georgia: The Bulldogs are hoping to land a playoff spot but will likely have to settle for a trip to the Sugar Bowl as a consolation prize.
