Alabama backup quarterback Jalen Hurts led a fourth quarter comeback over Georgia in the SEC Championship after Tua Tagovailoa left with an injury.
Hurts came through with two touchdowns. He threw for one to tie the game and sealed the game with a gutsy run to take the lead.

After the game, the normally emotionless Nick Saban got a little choked up talking about Hurts and his performance. He might have even cracked a smile.
“I’m so proud of this guy for what he’s done this year, I can’t even tell you.”

Jalen Hurts just cemented his legacy at Alabama. He’ll never pay for a drink or a meal in Tuscaloosa ever again.
