With a 16.0 overnight rating - ESPN's third-best overnight for any game, ever, in any sport - last night's National Championship game 45-40 win by Alabama was memorable for many reasons. Here, ESPNFrontRow.com shares some of the mega moments from ESPN's third iteration of the college FB Megacast.

As good as O.J. Jordan (the game's offensive MVP), Derrick Henry and Jake Coker were for Alabama, it was ESPN's PylonCam that may have been the "real MVP."

Nailed it. https://t.co/WR0nabiE95 · College GameDay
This is a helluva shot! #PylonCam. The #BAMA TD. #NationalChampionship https://t.co/qpdbdtmCT9" · The Sage of Sports

So popular was the PylonCam, in fact, that early this year it launched its own Twitter feed. And last night it spoke to its growing legion of fans throughout the game. America felt its pain and shared in its glory.

But an adoring public (and parents?) need to know - how did PC and his pylon siblings survive some of the crushing blows?

"There are four small connectors which are designed to disconnect when the pylon is hit hard, allowing the pylon cam to function as a normal pylon on impact," said ESPN's Senior Vice President of Product Innovation, Jed Drake. "The four wires are re-connected during a TV timeout. It takes about 20 seconds- think of a NASCAR pit stop. The pylon that was hit by (Alabama's Kenyan) Drake [no relation] was not damaged in any way. It was back in business on the next series."

We are not worthy of the #PylonCam’s greatness: https://t.co/9X3BXS0OJ2 https://t.co/JqWizz8lVT · Sports on Earth
