WATCH: Alabama wins national title on gorgeous 41-yard TD pass in OT
True freshman Tua Tagovailoa threw a perfect strike for the game winner
Down by three points and needing a touchdown to win in the first overtime series, Alabama backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa -- a true freshman who replaced starter Jalen Hurts at halftime -- threw an absolute dime to wideout Devonta Smith for a 41-yard game-winning touchdown strike.
It was an absolutely incredible finish.
Alabama trailed by 13 points twice in the game and entered the fourth quarter down by 10 points before storming back.
