Jalen Milroe got the nod to be the Alabama football starting quarterback for the first game of the season against Middle Tennessee. While some fans were skeptical, he has done a solid job in managing the game, extending plays with his legs and flashing some serious arm talent.
To extend the Crimson Tide’s lead to 28 over the scoreless Blue Raiders, Milroe unleashed a 47-yard touchdown to Isaiah Bond. He was hit in stride as he entered the end zone.
We have yet to see another quarterback take he field for Alabama, but there hasn’t been a need to, as Milroe continues to plead his case to remain QB1 for the program.
Arm strength on full display
Jalen Milroe absolutely SLINGS it to Isaiah Bond to make it 28-0 Alabama.

Points are being made
I don’t know, Milroe looked solid. He can get you out of some mistakes, deep ball was perfectly thrown. Thought you’d see a little more dominant run game.
