This really happened.

During last night's special senate election in Alabama: Alabama head football coach (and former Michigan State head coach) Nick Saban got almost 20,000 write-in votes.

As it stands right now, Democrat Doug Jones beat Republican Roy Moore.

By how much? About 20,000 votes.

Here are the updated vote totals from NBC this morning. Still about a 20,000 vote gap.
