The Alabama Crimson Tide got off to a great start to the Citrus Bowl against Michigan Saturday as Jerry Jeudy roasted the Woverines with an 85-yard touchdown catch.

Jeudy got past his man in the secondary. Mac Jones hit him in stride. Touchdown. Way too easy.

Alabama’s defense forced a punt on Michigan’s first offensive possession, and then the Crimson Tide scored this touchdown on their first play from scrimmage. Needless to say, it’s not the start Jim Harbaugh and Co. were looking for. But Nick Saban has to be grinning from ear to ear.
