Bryce Young will look to lead Alabama to their 2nd straight national championship, beginning Dec. 31 as it plays Cincinnati in the Cotton Bowl in one of the day’s 2 College Football Playoff semifinals.

Young became the 1st Alabama quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy, but he and his teammates have their eyes set on winning the program’s 19th national championship. The Crimson Tide will be heavy favorites to book a trip to Jan. 10’s title game in Indianapolis, but where do they lie when matched up with the other 3 teams in the field?

For Brady Quinn, he’s riding with the Tide, and Young is why.

“I think Bryce Young, which I’ve been kind of pounding the pavement for him all year, he’s one of the best quarterback talents that I’ve ever seen,” the FOX Sports college football analyst and former Notre Dame great said on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Thursday. “And so, it’s hard to pick against Bama just for that reason.”

When Patrick pressed Quinn on if he’d put Young in the same class as Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert and others, Quinn replied in the affirmative.

“As far as talent-wise, yes,” he said. “The types of throws he can make, and how he plays the game as a young player in college football is unbelievable. I said it before the year started…take the betting advice, he’s going to win the Heisman.

“Here’s the other one: He’s going to be the 1st 2-time Heisman winner (since Archie Griffin). Now the only thing that would stand in his way is an injury, or if he decides to bounce after next year.”
