Alabama defeats Georgia, 35-28, securing the top seed in the four-team college football championship tournament

Top-ranked Alabama stormed back from a 14-point deficit to defeat Georgia, 35-28, and secure the top seed in the four-team college football championship tournament.

The No. 1 ranked team and their quarterback, Jalen Hurts, pulled off a comeback in the Southeastern Conference championship game.

In the last 5 minutes and 19 seconds of the game, Hurts — who subbed in for an injured Tua Tagovailoa in the final quarter of the game — delivered two touchdowns to secure a lead and defeat No. 4-ranked Georgia. Tagovailoa had assistance coming off the field after suffering an apparent ankle injury.

Hurts threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jerry Jeudy and then ran 15 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:04 left.

Hurts was a starter during the last two seasons and helped lead the team to the national title as a freshman but ultimately lost the starting job to Tagovailoa.
