Nick Saban got choked up in postgame reflection on Jalen Hurts

Oklahoma tight end Grant Calcaterra hauls in a one-handed touchdown catch in front of Texas defensive back B.J. Foster during the second half of the Big 12 Conference championship NCAA college football game on Saturday Dec. 1 2018 in Arlingto

He promptly led two touchdown drives to give Alabama the lead with less than two minutes to play and earned his team the SEC title. When he trotted off the field after the winning TD, Tagovailoa was one of the first ones to greet him on the sideline.

The Athletic follows the same protocol as the actual Heisman voting: three points for a first-place vote, two points for a second-place vote, one point for a third-place vote.

For the second time in about 11 months, the Bulldogs squandered a double-digit lead to the Crimson Tide.

In January, the former two-year starter was benched during the second half of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

"With a team like that, you've got to be able to put them way because they keep hanging on", Georgia tight end Isaac Nauta said.

Georgia's Jake Fromm threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns, while Tagovailoa was only 10 of 25 for 164 yards.

This was the sort of challenge that should serve the Crimson Tide well in the College Football Playoff. Saban's vote is hardly a surprise, either, as he is always looking for ways to knock his team down a peg when expectations are so high.

Hurts led the Crimson Tide to the national championship as a freshman, only to lose the starting job to Tagovaila during the title game previous year.

"There was a lot of debate about Oklahoma, Georgia and Ohio State", CFP committee chairman Rob Mullens said.
