What we like
Outside of Clemson, because Trevor Lawrence has to play at least two more years, Alabama has the best starting quarterback situation in college football. Tua Tagovailoa is back and ready to build on his sophomore year that saw him end up as a Heisman Trophy finalist.
Tagovailoa finished last season with 3,966 passing yards and 43 touchdowns to just six interceptions. Tagovailoa doesn’t have to top those numbers for Alabama to have a successful season. He’ll ultimately be judged on what he does if Alabama is able to make it back to the SEC Championship Game and the playoffs.
