Terrell Owens Uses Jalen Hurts' Name to Describe Alabama's Championship Loss

Andrew GouldFeatured ColumnistJanuary 10, 2017

Up 24-14 entering the fourth quarter, the Alabama Crimson Tide seemingly had their second straight national title in the bag. The Clemson Tigers, however, stormed back to secure a 35-31 triumph with one second remaining.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts briefly regained the lead with a 30-yard touchdown run, but he completed just 13 of his 31 passes for 131 yards. If only there was a word to describe how it feels to lose a huge game at the last moment...

Yes, the easy play on words is right there. Terrell Owens took the bait.

The former star wide receiver tweeted "That really" alongside a picture of Hurts. Get it? Because his name is Hurts. And the loss hurt. 

Owens is going to need better material if he's inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year.
