'I'm so happy': Watch Nick Saban's postgame interview after Alabama win over Ohio State
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban earned his seventh career national title Monday night and said this year's team could be best described in one word: "perseverance."
Alabama finished 13-0 overall after playing a regular season with 10 Southeastern Conference opponents. Ohio State ended the season 7-1 overall after its season-ending loss to Saban's record-breaking squad.
As confetti rained down and players celebrated winning yet another national championship trophy, Saban shares his thoughts on the season, Alabama seniors and about winning his seventh career title.
"I'm just so happy for these players," Saban said in a postgame interview. "I wanted to win this game for these players because this game was about what they've done all year long, and I'm just so happy for our team and our players."
