Bryce Young and Will Anderson chose to not opt-out of the Allstate Sugar Bowl for Alabama.
Both will play against Kansas State on New Year’s Eve at 11:00 a.m. CT in New Orleans, La.
Alabama fans are overwhelmingly pleased with Young’s and Anderson’s decision to play in the bowl game. They are projected top five picks for the 2023 NFL Draft, but both decided to give Crimson Tide fans a strong showing for the last time. According to a poll from Touchdown Alabama Magazine, over 90 percent of Tide fans are happy with their decision to play.

I’m pleased because Alabama actually has a shot to win with Bryce but there really is no reason for him to play. He has nothing left to prove to us. He has given everything for this team already.

Pleased only because it shows heart. Those dudes are solid. Hopefully Saban benches them after a quarter or two
