Mac Jones Lights Up the Field
Jones had the best game of his career, throwing for 302 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Jaylen Waddle Dominates
A true difference maker, Waddle had 123 yards and 2 touchdowns while leading the team with 6 receptions. His big plays down the stretch were key in sealing the victory and helped make up for the absence of injured penalty-back Najee Harris.

The Bottom Line
The Tide proved they are one of the best teams in the nation and showed why they are primed for a deep run in the playoffs. This game was a classic, and Alabama made a statement by coming away with the win.
