(1:12)INDIANAPOLIS -- Georgia's agonizing 41-year wait is over.With 54 seconds left in Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T;, Georgia cornerback Kelee Ringo intercepted Alabama quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young and returned it 79 yards for a touchdown -- the longest pick-six in championship game history -- cementing the No. 3 Bulldogs' 33-18 win over the No. 1 Crimson Tide and the program's first national championship since 1980.The play brought Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett, a former walk-on, to tears on the sideline, and as soon as the clock expired, Georgia's assistant coaches and staff bolted to the elevators in the shaking press box at Lucas Oil Stadium, with one yelling, "Hell yeah!" as they thundered out cheering together.On the field, coach Kirby Smart said he hugged 89-year-old Vince Dooley's neck -- the last coach at Georgia before Smart to win the national title -- and they were both in tears."I told the guys in the locker room, just take a picture of this, because I think back to the '80 championship picture and seeing all those players and the Frank Walkers and the Herschel Walkers and all these people that have reached out and said things," Smart said. "That's what -- when you put as much time as we do into this thing, blood, sweat, tears, it means something."While it was a familiar matchup featuring two teams that faced each other in the 2018 national title game and again in this year's SEC championship game -- both Alabama wins -- it was a wildly different outcome before an announced crowd of 68,311. They delivered a thriller that was 180 degrees different from their game a month ago in the SEC championship, when Alabama manhandled Georgia up front for a resounding 41-24 win.This is just the third time since the BCS debuted in 1998 that there were multiple lead changes in the fourth quarter of a college football championship game:3 lead changes in 2017 CFP Championship Game (Clemson def.
