Milroe replaces an injured Bryce Young, who sustained an AC joint injury to his shoulder versus Arkansas.
He filled in for Young in the second quarter against the Razorbacks and totaled 65 passing yards, 91 rushing yards, and two touchdowns. Milroe assisted the Crimson Tide to a 49-26 victory on the road. He took first-team reps all week in practice to prepare himself for this opportunity to start. Coach Nick Saban and several Tide players have expressed confidence in Milroe.
Young will be ready if Alabama needs him at some point in the game, but tonight is Milroe’s moment.
