Alabama team, fans celebrate especially difficult title run

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Tens of thousands of fans gathered to celebrate Alabama's latest national championship, one that was especially hard to achieve.

This time the Crimson Tide had to overcome a loss in the final regular-season game, a series of defensive injuries and a period of uncertainty when it wasn't clear if a fourth consecutive playoff invitation was even forthcoming.

Then there was the climactic title game with Georgia that included a 13-0 halftime deficit, a quarterback switch and an overtime that started with a huge sack of Tua Tagovailoa. The final play - Tagovailoa's 41-yard touchdown heave to fellow freshman DeVonta Smith - was etched in the memories of Tide fans, players and coach Nick Saban.
