Alabama is turning back to Jalen Milroe. Alabama coach Nick Saban said Milroe will start again Saturday when No. 15 Ole Miss visits Bryant-Denny Stadium in the teams’ SEC opener. Milroe started the first two games and didn’t play at all in Game 3, while Tyler Buchner opened and Ty Simpson finished the 17-3 victory.
“From a quarterback standpoint — this is all I’m going to say about this — you know, Jalen really showed the leadership that I was looking for during the game in terms of supporting his teammates and doing the things he needed to do,” Saban said Monday. “He’s had the opportunity to play. So have the other guys. Jalen played the best of all those guys, so I think he’s earned the opportunity to be the quarterback.”
