"I'm so proud of this guy for what he's done this year, I can't even tell you".

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

His 47 touchdown passes are seven more than any other QB has thrown this season, and Haskins threw them while completing 70.2 percent of his passes for 4,580 yards. I worked so hard this week with my teammates. Then-backup Tua Tagovailoa replaced Hurts and threw three touchdowns, including a game-winner in overtime to lead the Tide back from a 13-0 deficit to defeat Georgia, 26-23, at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The injury occurred when an Alabama lineman accidentally stepped on Tagovailia's foot with just more than 11 minutes left in the game.

Georgia's Jake Fromm threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns, while Tagovailoa was only 10 of 25 for 164 yards. "I'm so happy, so happy for everybody".

The Iran nuclear deal , although highly controversial, was considered one of the Obama administration's major legacies. "Indeed, no country has converted a liquid-fuel, satellite-launch vehicle into a long-range ballistic missile".

"When he went into the game", linebacker Mack Wilson said, "I was telling Dylan Moses, 'Man, it's like deja vu.' I was like, 'Watch him go in and bring us back and win the game.' I knew he was going to do that and I'm pretty sure everybody else did, too". Haskins was the single-season Big Ten passing leader and threw for 396 yards and six touchdowns against MI to push the Buckeyes to a Big Ten title.

The Crimson Tide heads to the College Football Playoff for the fifth year in a row, undoubtedly as the No. 1 seed and the favorite to win another national title. He had his school- and Big 12-record streak of eight games with at least three TD passes snapped in a win against Oklahoma State on November 10.

"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. 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.
