No. 1 Alabama headlines the SEC on CBS Game of the Week this Saturday as it takes on No. 22 Texas A&M. But before the Crimson Tide hit the field and look to improve to 4-0 after outscoring opponents 170-28 in the first three weeks, you can relive Alabama's stunning quarterback swap in the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship in a whole new light.
The second season of CBS Sports' "Four Sides of the Story" program will kick off Saturday on CBS with "Alabama Audible," a special documentary that unpacks coach Nick Saban's headlining quarterback change during January's 26-23 Alabama win over Georgia. Featuring interviews with Saban, second-half hero Tua Tagovailoa and others, it offers four different viewpoints of national championship hysteria -- and perhaps one of the boldest coaching decisions in college football history.
A legendary comeback. A gutsy coach. A backup quarterback. A National Championship.— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) September 18, 2018

The special leads into "College Football Today" (3 p.m. ET) and the "Game of the Week" between Alabama and Texas A&M (3:30 p.m. ET), and it includes the following perspectives from when Saban benched starting quarterback Jalen Hurts and trusted Tagovailoa, a true freshman, to top the SEC champion Bulldogs:
- Tagovailoa and Saban
- Diane and Galu Tagovailoa, Tua's parents who were in the stands that night
- ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit, who was the game's play-by-play analyst
- Georgia defensive back Aaron Davis, who played against Tagovailoa that night
The documentary will also re-air on CBS Sports Network on Monday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. ET.
