The Alabama Crimson Tide won their fifth national championship in nine years in a 26–23 overtime victory over the Georgia Bulldogs. Tua Tagovailoa connected with DeVonta Smith from 41 yards out for a touchdown and the title.

Alabama was trailing 13–0 at the half. Tagovailoa took over in the second half for Alabama after starting quarterback Jalen Hurts struggled. Kicker Andy Pappanastos missed a 36-yard field goal at the end of regulation that would have won the game for the Crimson Tide.

Georgia scored a field goal in their first overtime possession. Tagovailoa was sacked on Alabama's opening overtime play before hurling the game-winning touchdown.

"The Crimson Tide will not be denied!" was the official call from ESPN's Chris Fowler.
