Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe has steadily improved every week during the 2023 college football season. As the team looks to make a jump in the College Football Playoff ranking, Milroe has stepped up in a big way.
In the first half against Kentucky, Milroe did make one poor decision, which led to an interception, but he has played nearly flawless football, all while being visibly hurt after he took a hard hit to the leg on the first drive of the game.
He’s completed 11 passes on 17 attempts for 185 yards and three touchdowns for an average of 10.9 yards per completion. Milroe also had five carries for 29 yards and a rushing touchdown.
Here’s what fans had to say about his first-half performance.
Gets better every week
The improvement from Milroe as a passer has been fun to see. Much more patience to let his WRs get in space and his touch on these passes are great to see. Bama offense been getting better each week #RollTide

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen someone improve quite this much during the duration of a season. Milroe’s development is unreal.
