TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Bryce Young is showing why he arrived at Alabama as the nation’s top dual-threat quarterback. The sophomore was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week after the 52-24 win over Tennessee on Saturday.

The third-ranked Crimson Tide’s Heisman Trophy front-runner is clearly a passer first and foremost, but he’s also a quick, shifty running threat when necessary. Coach Nick Saban says Alabama doesn’t have designed quarterback runs for Young.

But the sophomore ran for his first two career touchdowns in a 52-24 win over Tennessee ahead of Alabama’s bye week.

Young ran 10 times for 42 yards in the game, including being sacked twice.
