Saban votes Clemson, Swinney votes Alabama No. 1 in latest poll

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

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will need approximately two weeks to recover from a procedure to help fix a high ankle sprain he suffered during the SEC Championship Game on Saturday night.

Hurts passed for a touchdown and ran for another to rally the top-ranked Crimson Tide to a 35-28 win over No. 4 Georgia for the Southeastern Conference championship Saturday in Atlanta.

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.

"We've always had a lot of faith in Jalen, and I told him when we put him in when Tua got hurt, 'It's your time, ' and he certainly took advantage of it", an emotional Saban told CBS. Alabama won a championship.

Now the word "fight" evokes fist fights, verbal diarrhoea and racial and religious taunts. "Boys and girls want to win". Not to a captain, a coach or those passing through.

Afterward, they stood side-by-side on the podium in the middle of the field while Alabama received its SEC championship trophy. "I'm so happy, so happy for everybody".

Hurts connected on seven of his nine passes for 82 yards with a touchdown passing and the game-winning score on a rush.

Georgia can make a pretty good case for the playoff, too, but the Bulldogs will likely get left out.

But a loss, especially a lopsided one, could knock the Bulldogs out of the No. 4 spot, as Oklahoma and Ohio State are now breathing down Georgia's neck for that last ticket into the playoff. While this one didn't end with the suddenness of that national title game, it hurt just as bad.

The Sooners will now await word on if they have made their way into the College Football Playoff following the loss of fourth-ranked Georgia on Saturday.
