Nick Saban applauds the toughness of Mac Jones and Jaylen Waddle

On two of the more memorable plays from Alabama’s last game against Missouri on Saturday, quarterback Mac Jones and Jaylen Waddle were on the opposite end of two big shots during two largely productive plays for the Crimson Tide.

First came Waddle’s acrobatic 46-yard reception over the middle of the field where he took a shot from Tigers safety Tyree Gillespie. The play placed Alabama all the way inside of Missouri’s 20, setting up the Crimson Tide for an important early score.

“Well I kind of, can see through my eye of so I kind of braced a little bit and I jumped,” said Waddle on Monday when asked to describe the play.
