Alabama WR DeVonta Smith was a focal point of the defensive game plan for Notre Dame coming into the Rose Bowl, but the Fighting Irish still had trouble slowing him down.

Smith made two touchdown catches in the first half of 26 and 34 yards as he showed a national audience some of the same moves and athleticism that dominated the SEC this season. The only brief concern for Crimson Tide fans came when Smith landed hard on his second touchdown, and appeared to injure his lower back. But he worked out the issue on a stationary bike, and with some trainers nearby late in the first half.

The only disappointing play came when he was slowed on a running play where Smith lost five yards late in the first half.

Smith finished with five catches for 101 yards, as he caught all five targets.
