Nick Saban Asked Tua This Question
Freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa took a 16 yard loss on a sack vs Georgia in OT of the national championship game, taking Bama out of game-tying field goal range.
Nick Saban blew a head gasket! But then Tua threw a bomb to wide receiver DeVonta Smith for a game winning TD.
Coach Saban has revealed that he asked Tua after the game why he took a sack when Bama needed a field goal to stay in the game. Tua told Coach Saban that he just needed more room to throw the ball.
And that is how it happened!
