Alabama Crimson Tide Game Notes
Alabama redshirt freshman QB Bryce Young threw for 369 yards and three scores with an interception on 28-of-48 passing in a 41-38 loss on Saturday to Texas A&M. Young (6'0/194) was able to put up big numbers again, but it comes in his first loss as a starter for the Crimson Tide. It's also worth noting that this could have been a monster game for the redshirt freshman if not for some uncharacteristic dropped passes, including one that should have gone for a touchdown. That being said, this was the worst that Young has played this year, but it should have been enough for a win. It was not. Alabama will likely take out some frustrations against Mississippi State next Saturday.
