Tua Tagovailoa posts emotional photo on Instagram following Alabama's loss to LSU
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa appeared to be mostly healthy against LSU despite having right ankle surgery about three weeks ago.
Tagovailoa finished 21-for-40 passing for 418 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception. Three times in the second half of the 46-41 loss to LSU, Tagovailoa rallied the Crimson Tide to within a touchdown of the Tigers.
The showdown, which was played in front of President Donald Trump, also saw Tagovailoa toss an 85-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith with 1:21 left to answer LSU’s latest score.
But it wasn’t enough in the end as the Crimson Tide lost their eight-game winning streak in the series and Alabama’s 31-game home winning streak.
Tagovailoa took to Instagram after the game, and said, “1 leg or not. The Game needed loving, so I gave it my heart.”
