The 007 agent of Alabama football came up clutch for a second consecutive week.
Isaiah Bond will have Crimson Tide fans appreciating him for a life with his game-winning touchdown reception on fourth down versus Auburn with 31 yards to go.
The sophomore wide receiver returned against the marquee program of his home state and ripped the hearts of its fan base.
Bond, a native of Buford, Ga., made several critical plays in Saturday’s Southeastern Conference Championship Game to end Georgia’s 29-game winning streak. He caught five passes for 79 yards, including four receptions on a significant drive in the fourth quarter. Bond’s effort on a 75-yard drive (nine plays) finished on a 1-yard touchdown run from Roydell Williams, pushing Alabama to a 27-17 lead over the Bulldogs. The former four-star had a couple of impressive plays with one coming on a sliding catch. He prepared himself all season for the moment he had last week, pushing his team to a 27-24 victory in the SEC title game.
Bond and the Tide have the College Football Playoff Committee in a tough spot.
Alabama has the best victory in the nation on its resume and showed it belongs in the playoff.
