Fourth quarter meltdown dooms Georgia in loss to Alabama in SEC championship game

Kirby Smart, Nick Saban both stump for UGA to be part of CFB Playoff

ATLANTA — In a game that looked like something from a made-for-TV movie script, the Alabama Crimson Tide rode the coat tails of one-time-starter-turned-backup quarterback Jalen Hurts to a come-from-behind, 35-28 win over Georgia, claiming their fourth SEC title in the last five years. 

Although he only played one quarter of action, coming in after season-long starter, Tua Tagovailoa went down early in the fourth with what looked like a high ankle sprain, Hurts’ time in the game was most valuable, as he completed 7-of-9 passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns, one in the air and one on the ground.
