College Football Highlights: Tua Tagovailoa, No. 1 Alabama roll against Louisville | ESPN

Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts will both play in the Crimson Tide's opener vs. Louisville on Saturday, Alabama coach Nick Saban told ESPN's Chris Fowler. So why do you continually try to get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them? In between, Tagovailoa had a 9-yard scoring run and fellow sophomore Najee Harris scored on a 1-yard run. "I'm not going to, so quit asking". Saban indicated that the QB taking the first snap would be a game-time decision.

"Everyone had questions about who was going to start at quarterback when this game started", Taylor said. He played so well, in fact, that it's easy to see how he'll be Alabama's primary QB throughout the season.

Saban has been around long enough to know how this works.

Maria's ESPN colleague Chris Fowler blasted Saban's hostility, speculating that Saban's "unwarranted" response was the result of him misunderstanding a question that seemed created to give him some wiggle room around naming a starter. Absolutely, but this is just how Saban is. Asked about what else Saban was focused on after a 51-14 win, Saban vented a little bit more for good measure. Ultimately, Saban's promised two-quarterback rotation became three as redshirt freshman Mac Jones also came in for much of the fourth quarter.
