Alabama Crimson Tide Game Notes
When speaking about Alabama redshirt freshman QB Bryce Young, Jordan Rodgers sees his brother in him. The SEC Network analyst had some high praise for Young (6'/194). After practice on Thursday, Rodgers asked the young signal-caller who he modeled his game after. Young answered with Jordan's brother Aaron Rodgers. Jordan was not surprised, and said that the players "look identical." Very high praise from the SEC Network analyst. Young will lead Alabama against Ole Miss on Saturday.
