Brothers Calvin & Riley Ridley, A Special Moment After the Game
See how Calvin and Riley connected after the National Championship game last. I love the part where Calvin gives his brother his Jersey and says, "Don't let nobody steal this!"
The No. 4-ranked University of Alabama football team defeated No. 3-ranked Georgia, 26-23, on a game-winning 41-yard touchdown pass from freshman Tua Tagovailoa to freshman wide receiver DeVonta Smith Monday night in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
The Crimson Tide (13-1) won its 17th national championship after edging the Bulldogs (13-2) in just the fourth College Football Playoff. Alabama head coach Nick Saban improves to 12-0 against his former assistants with the win over UGA’s Kirby Smart.
Tagovailoa was named Offensive MVP after going 14-of-24 for 166 yards, three scores through the air and 27 yards on the ground, all in the second half.
On defense, junior Da’Ron Payne was named the Defensive MVP with six tackles in the game. Sophomore linebacker Mack Wilson led the team with 12 tackles, including two tackles-for-loss. Senior defensive back Tony Brown and sophomore defensive lineman Raekwon Davis each had an interception in the win. (UA Athletics)
