LOOK: Drive chart shows just how ridiculously effective Tua Tagovailoa has been
Tua Tagovailoa’s numbers are so mind-boggling that it’s often difficult to comprehend them just by looking at traditional statistics.
Thankfully, there are alternate ways of breaking down how dominant Alabama’s quarterback has been this season. Kirk Herbstreit provided one Thursday when he tweeted a picture of Tagovailoa’s drive chart, which you can see below.
On this particular chart, yellow indicates a drive that ended with a touchdown, blue represents those that resulted in field goals and white is reserved for a series with no score.
Unsurprisingly, there’s a whole lot of yellow.
Tagovailoa has completed 70 percent of his passes for 2,066 yards, 25 touchdowns and no interceptions as the No. 1 Crimson Tide has demolished every challenger so far. Under Tagovailoa’s direction, Alabama leads the nation in scoring with 54.1 points per game, something few thought possible for a Nick Saban-coached team.
He’s also the leader in the Heisman Trophy race despite being just a sophomore, and it’s unlikely that you’ll find a drive chart better than the one with his name on it.
