Twitter reacts: Georgia blows big lead, Alabama wins national championship


Monday night was one to remember. Well, maybe not if you’re a Georgia fan.

After going up 20-7 in the third quarter, Georgia gave up 13 unanswered points so Alabama could force overtime. Crimson Tide freshman quarterback – and now hero – Tua Tagovailoa won the game with a 41-yard touchdown pass, making Alabama the national champion for the fifth time in nine years.

Alabama fans celebrated, Georgia fans endured another excruciating heartbreak, and Georgia Tech fans had a few laughs.

Here are some Twitter reactions regarding what’s sure to go down as one of the best championships played:
