James Cook delivered one of the biggest plays we have seen in a CFP national championship game.
Cook broke for a 67-yard run late in the third quarter of the championship game between Georgia and Alabama to set up the first touchdown of the game.

Though Cook made the big play, it was Zamir White who later punched it in from a yard out to give Georgia the lead. The Bulldogs took a 13-9 lead in the game, although Alabama answered the touchdown with a field goal to make it 13-12 in the fourth quarter.
