Nobody's perfect: Jalen Hurts' incredible turnover streak comes to an end
Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts has had an impressive streak of not throwing interceptions.
That streak came to an end on Saturday night against Arkansas when hurts was picked off by Razorbacks defensive back Kevin Richardson.
Hurts had 206 consecutive passes without an interception before throwing one in the third quarter against the Razorbacks. The streak dated all the way back to last season’s 30-12 win over Auburn — a game in which Hurts threw two picks.
Coming into Saturday, Hurts’ streak was the second-longest of its nature in school history, according to Tuscaloosa News sports reporter Ben Jones.
The all-time school record for most passes without an interception is 291, set by AJ McCarron.
At the time of this post, Hurts was 10-for-17 with 135 yards and a touchdown to go along with the pick. Alabama led 31-3 nearing the end of the third quarter.
