What Nick Saban said after Alabama rolled Louisville 51-14
Alabama totally dismantled Louisville Saturday night 51-14 in Orlando.
The Tide racked up 517 yards of total offense, and it was nearly balanced — 297 yards passing and 220 yards rushing. QB Tua Tagovailoa was nearly flawless as the game’s starter, throwing for 227 yards and two TDs. Jalen Hurts played in the first and second half, but he threw for just 70 yards.
Although Alabama thrashed Louisville, coach Nick Saban look displeased throughout much of the second half. The Tide committed 10 penalties for 111 yards, and the defensive secondary had some lapses. Once Saban gets done watching film with Alabama’s players, he’ll make them think they lost 51-14.
Here’s what Saban said after the game:
As you can see, Saban credits his players for playing hard and winning big, but quickly shifts into where the team needs to improve.
