That spells danger for the Longhorns, but Alabama kept them behind in the playoffs with characteristically uncharacteristic play. Alabama quarterback Bryce Young has 78 yards passing, but only 14 receiving yards have come, dropping several easy passes to stifle the offense. The Crimson Tide also committed 11 penalties in the first half, with All-American linebacker Will Anderson picking up three offside penalties of his own, the most by the program in the first half since 2010.
