Elite quarterbacks beat elite defenses, as Young reminded us Saturday. It didn’t matter that no Alabama running back surpassed 55 yards.
Little need for handoffs with Young picking apart Georgia’s secondary. Credit Alabama’s offensive line, which surrendered seven sacks against Auburn, for finding fortitude.
By halftime, Young had broken the first-half record for passing yards in an SEC Championship game. By game’s end, he’d broken the passing record and secured most valuable player honors with 421 yards passing, 40 rushing and four total touchdowns.
Next up: A trip to New York, where Young likely will receive college football’s top individual honor.

@colbysullivan - Where ya at?”
Sorry, had to go to a stupid company Christmas party and I missed most of the 2nd half. I’m beyond flabbergasted at how well our OP performed. I actually predicted a very similar score, just with the teams reversed lol.
