The National Championship game provided a grand stage for a breakout performance from Alabama freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailova.

Brown, the outside linebacker from Columbus, Georgia, received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that cost Alabama 15 yards in the third quarter of Monday night’s game.
