The Alabama Crimson Tide pulled off a remarkable late comeback to knock off the Georgia Bulldogs 26-23 in Monday night’s College Football Playoff National Championship. It’s Alabama’s fifth national championship since 2009.
The Crimson Tide’s game-winning touchdown came on a 41-yard pass from backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to DeVonta Smith in overtime.
We’ve already shared several calls and reactions of the play from ESPN’s Megacast, and now here’s the radio call from Alabama play-by-play man Eli Gold of the Crimson Tide Sports Network (via @FreeYW_ on Twitter):

That’s the happy call.
And here’s the *unhappy call* of the final play, from Scott Howard of the Georgia Bulldogs Sports Network… followed by a smiling Nick Saban on SportsCenter with SVP:
“TAGOVAILOA GOING DOWNFIELD AND HE’S GOT A MAN OPEN; OH MY GOD TOUCHDOWN ALABAMA HAS WON IT!”
