ATLANTA (AP) — Alabama and Jalen Hurts staged a comeback in the Southeastern Conference championship game.
Hurts, who started the previous two seasons, replaced an injured Tua Tagovailoa in the fourth quarter and delivered two touchdowns in the final 5:19 in the top-ranked Crimson Tide’s 35-28 come-from-behind win over No. 4 Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Hurts threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jerry Jeudy and then ran 15 yards for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:04 left. Tagovailoa was helped off the field with an apparent right ankle injury in the fourth quarter.
