1. QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama
Is he having a better season than Kyler Murray? Not really, at least in terms of stats. And he’s not really needed as much as some of the other key guys on this list.
But he’s the guy on the team.
No one in the last ten years has been able to finish with a passer rating of over 200, and Tagovailoa is up to 238.32 as he continues to be flawless.
He wasn’t needed against Louisiana, but he got his practice in, completing all eight of his passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns, and he ran for two scores.
And it helps when your team can do this, too …
Now, on the year, he has 115 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and he’s completing 75% of his throws for 1,161 yards and 14 scores, averaging 13.2 yards per pass.
And he has yet to throw a pick for the unquestioned No. 1 team in college football.
