CFB Roundup: Hurts lifts Alabama; Clemson coasts

CFB Roundup: Hurts lifts Alabama; Clemson coasts

The Bulldogs Instant Classic against Alabama was the most-watched and highest-rated regular-season game on any network in the past seven years, per a CBS release. The hero in last year's national title game against the Bulldogs, Tagovailoa threw two interceptions Saturday evening.

"It kind of feels like I'm breaking my silence", Hurts said.

This was a reversal of the storyline from last season's national title game, when Tagovailoa replaced an ineffective Hurts at the start of the second half with Alabama trailing Georgia 13-0.

-Paulson Adebo, Stanford, had two interceptions in the fourth quarter, including a spectacular one-handed grab in the end zone to help prevent the game-tying score, as the Cardinal won its ninth straight Big Game, 23-13 over California.

However, the leader of the Crimson Tide appeared to have a change of heart on where Georgia should rank heading into Sunday morning.

Notre Dame makes College Football Playoff
They've been in every single College Football Playoff final since the event was created in 2014, and won two, in 2015 and 2017. The secondary did look a lot better against the Panthers, though, as they only gave up eight passing yards the entire game.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart understands this, and while 90 percent of the battle will be out-coaching college football legend Nick Saban, Smart needs to make sure his team is mentally ready for their toughest challenge of the season. He's quickly built Georgia into a national powerhouse, but he keeps coming up short against his ex-boss.

This is going to be the biggest college football game to date.

Top-ranked Alabama, No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Notre Dame are all expected to land berths in the four-team College Football Playoff when the field is announced on Sunday.

QB Kyler Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns this season. Alabama might not be able to completely shut the Sooners down, but the Tide will get enough stops in the end.

But in a script better suited for a Walt Disney movie, backup Jalen Hurts came off the bench to rally Alabama from 28-21 down to the victory. Since then, the Bulldogs have looked really good on both sides of the football, beating three ranked teams in five games and allowing just over 18 points per game.
