Were you expecting a rout? It took overtime to crown a champion college football team. Would it be Alabama or Georgia? By now, you probably already know.

After leading through the first half, the Georgia Bulldogs couldn’t keep their lead as the Alabama Crimson Tide evened the score at 20-20 with less than 4 minutes to go in the game.
