Tagovailoa outshines Murray to lead Alabama back to national title game
31 December, 2018, 10:05 | Author: Delia Walker
Against Oklahoma, Alabama came out firing from the word go, with sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa - who finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting to Murray - connecting with fellow sophomore DeVonta Smith on a 50-yard completion on the game's first offensive play. It's Alabama 45, Oklahoma 34, as the Heisman Trophy victor has thrown for two touchdowns and now run for another. The ensuing Oklahoma drive resulted in a three and out, where Kyler Murray was unable to get the ball out of his hands in three passing attempts - he scrambled once and was sacked twice. Granted, Oklahoma was ranked 130thin passing defense, but Alabama's offense seemed more interested in playing its game than trying to exploit the Sooners' weaknesses.
"I've always felt like I could play in the NFL", Murray said this week.
"When I saw an opportunity to score, I just tried my best to score", Jacobs said with a chuckle. Alabama's offense ran the ball consistently enough to chew clock, and Tua Tagovailoa was almost flawless (24 of 27 for 318 yards and four touchdowns). "This isn't satisfying. I know it's a great season, and we've got a lot to be proud about, but coming up short wasn't the goal".
Both have regularly been winning games by wide margins this year. You don't sit there and say we didn't get [it] done. "I think that's the moral of the story".
But if it was the last time he put on a helmet and shoulder pads, he left little doubt about why his decision between baseball and football became increasingly hard as the season went on.
"You go down 28-0, I think most teams in the league or in the whole damn country would have gave up against a team like that", Murray said. I wanted to win a national championship. The Tigers are going to score and that's going to keep them in the game from the jump. I feel like we've started to... we kinda started out a few years ago saying, hey, we've gotta be more current.
"Early in the first half, jitters, you haven't played in a month, we just didn't execute in the first quarter", Murray said.
Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who finished 24 of 27 for 318 yards and four touchdowns, orchestrated a three-score opening act before Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray completed his first pass. Tagovailoa picked up where he left off in the Playoff with a 50-yard pass to DeVonta Smith on the first play from scrimmage and played the role of distributor from there. "After that we outscored them by 17 the rest of the way". The 295-pound defensive lineman started with his opinion, but something stopped Williams from saying what he really meant right in the middle of his sentence. Maybe, we can finish that sentence for you. I think he's done a tremendous job with the offense; Lincoln Riley's done a tremendous job as well.
