Bryce Young and Jalen Milroe Share Sweet Moment After the Game
Alabama quarterbacks Bryce Young and Jalen Milroe shared a sweet moment on the field after Alabama's 24-20 victory against Texas A&M.
Milroe started for the Crimson Tide on Saturday night as Young is injured with an AC sprain in his shoulder. The redshirt freshman went 12-of-19 for 111 yards, three touchdowns, one interception, and two fumbles.
Alabama struggled on all sides of the ball but sealed the win when Aggies quarterback Haynes King threw an incomplete pass on first-and-goal at the two-yard line as time expired.
During the post-game celebration, Young embraced Milroe on the field for a few seconds during the intro to "Yea Alabama." The two patted each other on the backs, then walked downfield towards the team.
"I think it's really, really good that you have players that support each other. Bryce is a good leader. That's what good leaders do. They set a good example, which Bryce does, but they also support their teammates and serve other people for their benefit. And I think that kind of reaction to Jalen, when he probably wishes that there was a couple of things that happened in the game that didn't happen for him. It's probably really good for you know, Jalen's growth and development," said Alabama head coach Nick Saban on the moment.
No. 1 Alabama travels to Rocky Top to take on No. 8 Tennessee on Saturday, October 15, 2022, at 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS. Coverage will be on Tide 100.9 and 95.3 The Bear.
