Taking down the No. 1-ranked, undefeated Georgia Bulldogs, No. 3 Alabama stunned the college football world with a 41-24 blowout win in today’s SEC Championship game.

“Upset” is not exactly a word in the Crimson Tide’s vocabulary — except for today. As 6.5-point underdogs heading into the matchup, Nick Saban’s squad wasn’t favored for the first time in 92 straight contests.

Overcoming the odds, Alabama made relatively light work of a Georgia team that dominated through the entirety of the 2021 regular season.

The college football world took to Twitter with their reactions to this upset victory.

This victory for the Crimson Tide came in large part due to the potentially Heisman-clinching performance for Bama quarterback Bryce Young. Throwing 26/44, the star signal caller collected 421 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions through the air. He also took to the

NBA Twitter reacts to Steph Curry’s 37 point performance in the Warriors win over the Nets

In a primetime battle, Curry quickly answered the bell. The two-time former Most Valuable Player went to work in the opening frame, scoring 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting from the field to go along with two assists and two steals. Curry caught fire from deep to start the game, drilling four 3-pointers in the first quarter.

The college football world reacts to Kansas’ stunning 57-56 overtime upset at Texas

Kansas football took down Texas, 57-56, in overtime on Saturday.

Yes, you read that correctly.

And this was a football game, to be clear.

Saturday marked Kansas’ first Big 12 win since 2008 against Iowa State, and it sure was a game to remember.

Kansas led by multiple touchdowns through much of the second half before allowing a game-tying touchdown in the final minutes, which sent the game to overtime at 49-all.

Texas started with the ball in overtime and quickly scored a touchdown, taking a 56-49 lead. After a Kansas touchdown made the score 56-55, Jayhawks coach Lance Leipold opted to play it aggressive and go for the win rather than a tying extra point. Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels scrambled and found Jared Casey in the end zone for the winning two-point conversion.
