Even after scoring a touchdown, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban will have something to be enraged about. On the extra-point attempt, backup quarterback Mac Jones couldn’t handle the snap and it led to a brutal missed kick.

Jones is handling the snaps on kicks because of injuries, and the result should already be something that terrifies Saban. Jones couldn’t even handle the snap for a second and couldn’t even recover enough to put the ball in a decent position to be kicked.
If it happens again, the issue may face Saban to just abandon any field-goal attempts in this game and go for it on fourth downs inside the 40-yard line and attempt two-point conversions going forward.
