The final game of the 2020-21 college football season ended with a familiar name at the top of the mountain.

The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide took down No. 3 Ohio State on Monday night to claim their 18th national title in program history. Alabama head coach Nick Saban made history of his own, passing the great Paul “Bear” Bryant in total national championship wins as a head coach (7).

Heisman Trophy winner Devonta Smith had himself a night, racking up 12 catches for 215 yards and 3 touchdowns (in just one half). Smith took the field on Alabama’s opening possession of the second half, but left with a dislocated finger and was unable to return to the game.

Alabama quarterback Mac Jones set career highs in completions (36), attempts (45), yards (464), and tied a career high with 5 passing touchdowns in the game. His performance was still not enough to earn himself the MVP, as Devonta Smith’s incredible first half performance edged him out for the award.

Jones also believes that this Alabama team may just be the greatest of all time.

On the final possession of the game, Landon Dickerson took the field to snap the ball one last time for the Crimson Tide after sustaining a knee injury during Alabama’s SEC Championship win over Florida earlier in the season. Dickerson was awarded the Rimington Award as the best center in college football in 2020.

Nick Saban continues to make history, earning his sixth national championship with the Crimson Tide.
