Alabama QB Mac Jones sets school record against Georgia
Alabama quarterback Mac Jones did something Saturday night that Tua Tagovailoa or any other signal caller in Tide history ever accomplished.
Jones notched his third straight 400-yard passing game, this time against the Bulldogs top defense. Last week, Jones became the first Alabama quarterback to throw for back-to-back 400-yard games. So, he essentially broke his own record, and it will likely be one that stands for a long time.
Jones threw for 435 against Texas A&M, 417 against Ole Miss and 417 against Georgia.
Currently with over 6 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Jones has thrown for 410 yards and 4 touchdowns against Georgia. He’s thrown touchdowns to DeVonta Smith (2), Jaylen Waddle (1) and John Metchie (1).
Jones was supposed to be the placeholder and bridge from Tagovailoa to 5-star freshman Bryce Young. Instead, he’s quickly become the SEC’s best quarterback who will become a major factor in the Heisman Trophy race.
Alabama knocked off Georgia 41-24.
