DeVonta Smith wins CFP National Championship Game Offensive MVP after epic performance
DeVonta Smith had an electrifying first half of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, recording 12 catches for 215 yards and 3 touchdowns through the opening 2 quarters.
Fans were eager to see what the Alabama senior wide receiver would do in the 2nd half, but a hand injury suffered early in the 3rd quarter forced him to miss the remainder of the contest. The Crimson Tide, though, finished off Ohio State to win their 18th national championship.
And as expected, Smith won the CFP National Championship Game’s Most Valuable Player award. He finished with the most catches in a Playoff final and was just shy of Ja’Marr Chase’s championship game record of 221 yards set last year against Clemson.
While Smith’s injury cut a tremendous night short, it’s still a performance to be remembered, and he’ll be ending his legendary career with a national championship.
