Unbelievable stat shows how dominant Tua Tagovailoa has been on third downs
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa has taken the college football world by storm this season, leading the Tide to a 2-0 record and putting his stamp on the starting job.
As good as he’s been overall, though, he’s really stepped it up on third downs, and his numbers are simply unbelievable.
As you can see in the tweet below, Tagovailoa is 10-for-10 for 207 yards and four touchdowns on third down, with an incredible QB rating of 405.88:

Third down is usually when defenses bring pressure, and Tagovailoa has shown that he can beat that and torch defenses that dare challenge him.
It could be a very long year for Alabama’s opponents if the sophomore quarterback continues to dominate on the toughest down in football.
