With an amazing spoiler towards the Oklahoma Sooners, the Georgia Bulldogs found themselves playing the elite Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2018 National Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.
With an introduction of President Trump and an amazing halftime performance by Kendrick Lamar, this national championship was looking great, and eventful.
When it came down to the actual game, it was actually a bore until the final quarter. Both teams are defensive powerhouses and true-freshman QB Jake Fromm from Georgia looked poised to embarrass Nick Saban and bring home a national championship to Georgia since Hershel Walker led the Bulldogs to victory in 1980. But as I said many times, defenses win championships, and Fromm and Hurts (who was taken out at halftime), couldn’t find the holes they needed to put the other team away.
With a game tied at 20-20 going into overtime, something special is bound to happen. With a field goal that put Georgia up 23-20, Alabama had one final chance to tie with a field goal and send the game into a double overtime or take home the trophy with a touchdown. On 2nd down, Georgia’s monstrous defense sacked Alabama’s new quarterback, and it looked like all hope was lost in the Crimson Tide. At least, that’s what Georgia thought. On a 3rd down and long, Alabama ran a fade route all the way to the end zone. With poor coverage, the long, 41-yard pass came down in the hands of the Alabama receiver, and the Crimson Tide secured their 6th championship in 9 years.
