True freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa came off the bench to throw three touchdown passes, including one in overtime, and Alabama wins the college football national championship 26-23 over Georgia.

Trailing 13-0 at halftime, Bama coach Nick Saban pulled his starting quarterback and went with the kid from Hawaii. Wow, did it ever work!

The Tide actually had a chance to win it on the final play of regulation but missed a field goal attempt.

In overtime, Georgia kicked a field goal to take a 23-20 lead.

And then on a second down and 26 play, Tagovailoa threw a 41-yard TD pass to Devonta Smith (another true freshman) for the win.

Saban ties Bear Bryant in winning his 6th national title.
