For the first time under Nick Saban, the University of Alabama football program was more noticed on offense than defense throughout the 2018 season.
With a first-year starting quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa, the Crimson Tide averaged 45.6 points and 522 yards offensively per game – en route to totaling at least 50 points in eight of 15 matchups and 60 points in two games.
Tagovailoa became the fourth 3,000-yard passer of the Saban era (3,966) and earned recognition as a Heisman finalist and consensus All-American.
As for the Tide receiving unit, five players accounted for at least 500 yards – including Jerry Jeudy, who led the team with 1,315 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns. He was the recipient of the Fred Biletnikoff Award and was also regarded a consensus All-American for his efforts.
Despite the success, Alabama lost four offensive assistants to different jobs after not defending its title as national champions. Saban is currently putting together a staff to avenge his loss to Clemson, but for now, we look at the two-deep depth chart for the Tide’s offense.
