Prior to this weekend, the Crimson Tide had five players selected as semifinalists for national awards. Safety Deionte Thompson and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams were selected for the Chuck Bednarik Award, while the duo of Dylan Moses and Lyndell “Mack” Wilson at linebacker were named for the Butkus honor. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was recognized as a semifinalist for the Manning Award.
He has not thrown an interception in 152 passes attempts.
