Jalen Hurts didn’t get the start for Alabama, but he found his way into the game in the first half.
After subbing in for starter Blake Barnett, the true freshman Hurts lined up in the shotgun. His first play was a zone read.
And it ended in a fumble.

Hurts would stay in the game and bounce back. Later in the second quarter, he uncorked a bomb to ArDarius Stewart for a long touchdown.
