In the title game against Georgia, however, he struggled in the first half and was benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa.Tagovailoa went on to lead the Crimson Tide to a comeback win over the Bulldogs, and the following year, beat out Hurts for the starting job.Hurts would only play sparingly in the 2018 season, but famously replaced an injured Tagovailoa in the SEC Championship Game. He went 7-of-9 for 82 yards with a passing touchdown, and added another 28 yards and a touchdown on the ground to lead Alabama to a comeback win.last_img
