Scary moments in the College Football Playoff National Championship as freshman defensive back Kyriq McDonald collapsed on the sideline during the second half.

McDonald appeared alert as ESPN's broadcast showed McDonald sitting up on a stretcher with his eyes open.

The freshman is from Madison, Alabama and played high school football at James Clemens. He has not seen any action so far this season.

SEC Country Alabama beat writer Marq Burnett reports he spoke with McDonald who says he is fine now.
