Tuesday January 12th, 2016

Alabama drew first blood in the second half. 

Crimson Tide quarterback Jake Coker found O.J. Howard wide open down the right sideline for a 53-yard touchdown to give Alabama a 21–14 lead early in the third quarter of the national championship game. Howard hauled in the pass near the 25-yard line and ran untouched for the score.

The touchdown was Howard's first score of the season.
