The College Football Playoff National Championship saw some massive controversy early in the 4th quarter with Georgia holding a slim 13-12 lead.

With Georgia facing a 3rd-and-8 from their own 27, Stetson Bennett was ruled to have fumbled the ball just before attempting a pass. The ball would then bounce toward the sideline, but before it went out of bounds near the 16 yard line, it was ruled to have been recovered by Alabama’s Brian Branch.

The play eventually went to replay review to determine whether the fumble would stand and if Branch had a foot inbounds before gaining possession. The call was confirmed, and you can see how close Branch was in the tweet below:

On the Crimson Tide’s ensuing possession, they eventually found the end zone for the first time all game to pull ahead 18-13 with 10 minutes, 14 seconds remaining as the ensuing 2-point conversion failed. But the call led to major reaction across social media over the call from the ACC officiating crew, as you can see below:

Georgia eventually took the lead on an unreal Adonai Mitchell touchdown catch on its next possession to take a 19-18 lead before its own 2-point try failed. If the Crimson Tide end up winning this game, though, the Branch fumble recovery will loom large.
