Alabama Crimson Tide Game Notes
Alabama junior QB Bryce Young completed 18-of-28 passes for 195 yards and five passing touchdowns, while also rushing five times for 100 yards and a touchdown in a 55-0 shutout of Utah State. Young (6'0/194) had his way with the overmatched Aggies rushing for 100 yards, which is more than Young had in his previous 23 combined games played. He was surgical in marching the Tide down the field and scoring on their first nine possessions before mercifully calling the dogs off. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Young doesn't have the prototypical size of your garden variety franchise quarterback. However his command of the pocket and passing acumen are superb while the results on the field speak for themselves. Young is battling Ohio State QB CJ Stroud for the right to be the first signal caller taken in next the 2023 NFL Draft.
Texas Longhorns Game Notes
Texas sophomore WR Agiye Hall has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest last week. Hall (6'3/195) transferred from Alabama to Texas earlier this offseason, but doesn't appear set to contribute to the team early on. Hall was arrested last Thursday by the University of Texas police on a Class B misdemeanor charge after he reportedly damaged a parking boot placed on his vehicle. It's unlikely Hall's suspension will last any more than a few games, but head coach Steve Sarkisian said that he will return, "when the time is right." Hall's suspension only adds to a rough week for Texas receivers, after the team also lost Isaiah Neyor to a torn ACL.
