Jerry Jeudy

Jeudy is the best WR in college football, bar none.

You can throw out names like Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase, or CeeDee Lamb, but the South Florida native’s inspiring play pushed the Tide over the top.

The Alabama football offense started the game torrid after the former Bilitenkoff winner blazed past Michigan safety Dax Hill at breakneck speed for an 85-yard score. At one point, in the first quarter, Jeudy had two receptions for 106 yards and a score. The junior receiver’s season ends with six catches for 204 yards and a touchdown. Jeudy becomes the first Alabama receiver ever to top 200 yards in a bowl game.

Hats off, Jerry!

Najee Harris

Harbaugh strongly believed Najee Harris would come to Ann Arbor and play for him. Instead, Najee decided to roll with Alabama football, and he delivered several knockout blows on the final drive (11 carries, 68 yards, and two-yard score) to push his beloved Alabama to victory. During one angry run, it took the entire Michigan defense to bring him down.

His first score in the game was a typical, and tough Najee Harris run with an Olympic qualifying hurdle into the end zone.

Harris’ last game for the season ends with 24 carries for 136 yards and two touchdowns.
