Bama opened up as a 20-point favorite and won by just a point, thanks to a field goal with 10 seconds left.

It was a gutsy performance by the Longhorns, who many thought had zero chance to even compete. Texas had a 16-10 lead in the fourth quarter, but Bama fought back to take a 17-16 lead.

A few minutes later, Texas knocked a 33-yard field goal with just over a minute left and looked like it was on its way to one of the most stunning upsets college football has seen in quite some time.

But Bryce Young proved why he’s the defending Heisman Trophy winner, marching down the field quickly and getting inside the red zone after a 20-yard rush. Will Reichard drilled the game-winner, and Hudson Card’s final pass fell incomplete.
