1010 WINS– Alabama Crimson Tide center Bradley Bozeman had one heck of a night.

After winning the national championship 26-23 in an overtime victory against the Georgia Bulldogs on Monday night (Jan. 8) Bozeman put part two of his master plan into effect, getting down on one knee to propose to his longtime girlfriend Nikki Hegstetter.

Bozeman later told reporters that it was all part of his plan, to propose following a victory — but only a victory. If the team lost, he told reporters from the locker room, “we were going to regroup.”
