Coming into week 12 of the college football season a trio of games between top-25 opponents were set to have the biggest impact on the still forming playoff picture. Instead, after the games had been played, an injury to one of the best players in the country dominated conversations and headlines around the country. With 3:10 remaining the first half and a more than comfortable 35-7 lead, No. 5 Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa rolled out of the pocket under pressure from two Mississippi State defenders. They caught him, dragged him to the turf and, unintentionally, ended his season. Quite possibly his career.
