Alabama was exceptionally sloppy all first half, despite a strong performance from Najee Harris in the rushing game. Tua Tagovailoa threw a bone-headed interception in the endzone and the Tide defense was leaking runs all the way down the field.
Despite that, though, the Tide seemed to be in control of the game. That is, until Tagovailoa went out of the game after getting sacked. Upon review, it looked like his ankle twisted the wrong way, and as such, we we're blessed with two drives of Mac Jones at QB.
The results were predictably unflattering, and the whole thing ended with Joseph Bulovas missing a 41-yard field goal by probably 41 yards to the side.
Anyway, on to the second half. Hopefully Tua's ankle is just a scare, and he'll be back after a short break.
