hundred, the florida stands are empty. look at this tackle on mark thompson. we mentioned jalen hurts and the potential to be a true freshman to lead his team to a national championship. the only one who has ever done it, jamelle holloway. was a freshman at oklahoma when they won the national titles in the 1980's -- this is going to be the 25th win in a row for alabama. the all time record of consecutive wins bud wilkinson and oklahoma in the 1950's. they went to 47, and notre dame knocked them off. appleby, right side. c'yontai

>> verne: second down, five. mark thompson gets the carry again. you've got the next generation of five-star recruits on the field now. >> gary: that's right, and there's going to be 25 more coming this year, of course. a process. one of nick saban's favorite phrases. >> verne: third down, two. final 35 seconds of the 25th s.e.c. championship game. and the alabama crimson tide are going to take a 5-4 lead in this head to head. look at nick, pumping his fist. he is really, really happy with this one, and here is his former

thing first-round d sure thing all american. >> verne: our napa play of the ga. it on the shoulders of minkah fitzpatrick. >> gary: ball underthrown, fitzpatrick gets it, and starts going he's too good of an athlete to stop. >> verne: he goes in. 44 yards. it's time to once again welcome our old friend eli gold. >> on a first-and-10 play, appleby looks, throws across the middle. intercepted. alabama. their second. taken by minkah fitzpatrick with blockers, down notoriety side, 20, hurtles a man at the 15, he is in, touchdown, alabama -- 44 yards on the crimson tide's second interception of the day. >> verne: always great to hear
