2018 Stats: 36 of 50, 646 yds, 8 TD, 93 rush yds, 1 rush TD
Next Game: vs Texas A&M

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa not only served notice that he’s the top candidate for the Heisman trophy right now, but he’s making the Alabama Crimson Tide look nearly unbeatable.

While Ole Miss had struggled on defense coming into the game against the Tide, the thought was that the home crowd and a chance to upset the top team in the nation would have them playing a much better game.

It was worse.

Tua dissected the flopping Land Shark defense both in the air and on the ground, throwing for 191 yards and two touchdowns despite sharing some snaps with former starter Jalen Hurts.

Enter Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies, the next team to attempt an upset against the Tide this season. The Aggies rank 49th in total defense – not really overly impressive – and they are giving up 251 passing yards per game, against somewhat pedestrian opponents other than Clemson.

It will likely be more of the same from both Tua and the Tide, as both look to retain their respective number one rankings.
