Alabama’s Mac Jones brings highest total quarterback rating into home opener versus Texas A&M

After last week, no one questions if Mac Jones is the right guy at quarterback for Alabama football.

He proved himself versus Missouri on the road with an efficient performance. Jones paced the Crimson Tide to a 38-19 victory and he completed 75 percent of his passes in doing so. The redshirt junior connected on 18 of 24 attempts for 249 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers. Both of his scoring tosses went to Jaylen Waddle on third down and he anchored the Tide to converting nine of 14 third downs. Despite his six incompletions, each pass was on target and Jones was accurate with the ball.
