He was the Heisman Trophy runner-up last year and, through two games, was trailing only Jalen Hurts in the early race for the award. As the Tide opened up SEC play with a big win over South Carolina, Tua was unstoppable as he accrued passing yards and five touchdowns through the air. That effort made him the first player in the illustrious history of the Alabama program to throw for over yards and five touchdowns in a single game. Put simply, it was a Heisman-worthy performance. The question for Tagovailoa at this point, though, is if he can catch Oklahoma quarterback and former teammate Jalen Hurts.
September 30, Kevin C. Cox Over the last few weeks, we've had a little fun with our one-week college football star of the week. For those that are new here, first of all, welcome, but secondly, what we do is pick someone each week who was the star of that particular week on the college football schedule.
The person who made a social media splash. It could be a fan , a coach, a player, the guy who plays the music at the stadium , etc. More often than not, we want it to be something unique.

I know we said we're not in the scouting business, but we had no choice to give out our one-week college football star of the week award to DeVonta Smith, Alabama's third-best wide receiver. The thing about being the third-best wide receiver on this Crimson Tide offense, though, is that still makes you one of the 10 best wide receivers in the entire country.
His five touchdowns tied an SEC single-game record, and broke Alabama's previous single-game record of three for a wide receiver.

Smith's yards were also a school record. The fact Smith is No. The offense has now scored 42 or more points in all five of its games, and it trails only UCF's offense in total yards and only Washington State's offense in passing yards. As for total points, Bama is at , just three behind Ohio State.
How fitting is it that the year LSU finally figures it out on offense, Alabama is just going to outscore them? Life ain't fair in the SEC.
