Ricks was a highly anticipated transfer from LSU, but his 2022 season didn't unfold the way he envisioned. He made five starts for the Tide towards the end of the year while playing in 10 games. He recorded eight tackles and four pass breakups this year.
Burrow finished the game 23-of-38 passing, with 250 yards and two touchdowns. After the game Burrow was asked what the win meant to him he said, "Second biggest win I have been apart of. Only trails the Bama win in 2019."
