Bryce Young delivered his latest Houdini act early on against Mississippi State.

The Alabama quarterback scrambled to gain roughly 10 seconds in and around the pocket, then directed Jojo Earle to a wide-open pass in the end zone. It capped a 6 play drive that went 85 yards and covered 2:18. The third down pass was the only third down play on the drive, and was Earle’s second touchdown of the season.

Young avoided a three-man rush, and Earle broke free from his defender in the end zone to create the play, which came with 3:57 left in the first quarter. It was one of the biggest plays of the season for Earle, who missed the first 4 games of the season, and came into Saturday with 2 catches for 64 yards and a TD.

It gave Alabama a 7-0 lead.
