Tua Tagovailoa receives national award after strong performance vs. South Carolina
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa is one of the best quarterbacks in the country, and he showed why on Saturday against South Carolina.
In the 47-23 victory over the Gamecocks, Tagovailoa threw for 444 yards and 5 touchdowns to lead the Tide.
Now, he’s being rewarded for the big performance. On Wednesday, the Davey O’Brien Award announced on Twitter that the Alabama quarterback had earned the Week 3 National Quarterback of the Week Accolade:

Like the Heisman Trophy, Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray won the Davey O’Brien Award last season. Can Tagovailoa change that this fall?
He’s off to a great start, as Alabama’s offense looks just as dangerous through the air as it did last year.
