Saban votes Clemson, Swinney votes Alabama No. 1 in latest poll

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts (2) speaks to fans after the Southeastern Conference championship NCAA college football game between Georgia and Alabama, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, in Atlanta.

The most recent sports headlines delivered to your inbox every morning. That faith in the program that his opportunity would come happened on the biggest stage in what was the best game of the year, so far as Alabama improved to 13-0 and punched their ticket to the College Football Playoff. The Heisman Trophy front runner was having arguably his worst performance of the season, however, throwing just one touchdown and two interceptions. "I'm so happy. Happy for everybody". Murray had six first-place votes, while Tagovailoa had four.

Now, the Crimson Tide is headed back to the College Football Playoff, looking for its second straight national title and the sixth of the last decade under Saban.

The junior threw for 82 yards and the game-tying touchdown on 7 of 9 passing, while also recording 28 yards and the go-ahead score on five rushing attempts.

The visit comes after Prince Mohammed's attendance at the G20 summit in Argentina, where he represented Saudi Arabia. US President Donald Trump, Prince Mohammed's most vocal backer , did not have time for a one-on-one meeting.

Hurts took it from there.

Saban was one of two coaches to vote Clemson as the No. 1 team in the nation ahead of the Crimson Tide in the final Coaches Poll released on Sunday, according to USA Today. That gave Alabama a short field to work with on its winning drive. It was reminiscent of Tagovailoa replacing Hurts at halftime during that national championship game and carrying the team to a victory. Oklahoma's only defeat this season was to Texas, a 48-45 game on a neutral field in Dallas on October 6 - and the Sooners won the rematch in Saturday's Big 12 title game, 39-27.

"There was a lot of debate about Oklahoma, Georgia and Ohio State", CFP committee chairman Rob Mullens said.
