In the minds of people all across the country — who watch college football — they thought Jalen Hurts should have transferred. Yet, he did not.
He stayed — and he was criticized for doing so. He had another chance to transfer during the season following the fourth game due to a new NCAA Transfer rule, but, again, he stayed. The Tide needed their former starter on Saturday night.
The Alabama Crimson Tide defeated the Georgia Bulldogs in the Southeastern Championship. They won 35-28 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
Hurts played sporadically throughout the season, as Tua Tagovailoa took over the reins as the starter in the summertime. Yet, in the fourth quarter, it was Hurts, who Nick Saban had to call on, to replace Tagovailoa.
Hurts went 7 of 9 for 82 yards. He also had a touchdown. With the Tide down, 28-21, Hurts guided the team to the game-tying and game-winning touchdowns.
The 20-year-old Channelview, Texas native — who has signed a lot of maturity throughout this entire process this season — passed to Jerry Jeudy for a 10-yard touchdown to tie the game at 5:36 in the fourth quarter.
Then, after a questionable decision by the Georgia Bulldogs, the Crimson Tide received the ball back. Hurts guided the team down the field to score the game-winning 15-yard rushing touchdown at 1:15 left in the contest.
Prior to this game, he had gone 43 of 58 for 673 yards. He also had seven touchdowns and two interceptions.
After this game, Hurts is going to be remembered forever in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He saved his team from a potentially dangerous situation, as a loss could have knocked the team out of the College Football Playoff.
With the win, the Crimson Tide are a lock as the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff.
