On a weekly basis, Tua Tagovailoa makes a handful of throws that make your jaw drop. On Saturday against Arkansas, he did it again with a 42-yard strike to Jerry Jeudy.

In the second quarter, Tagovailoa waited patiently in the pocket then stepped in and fired a beautiful laser to Jerry Jeudy right into the end zone for the 42-yard touchdown and a 28-7 lead.

In just over a quarter of action, Tua has already thrown for 244 yards and three touchdowns, and he did it all with 7-of-8 passes completed.

If there is any doubt who the best quarterback in the country is, throws like this should demonstrate he resides in Alabama.

Tagovailoa has now thrown 17 touchdown passes this season with over 1,300 passing yards on fewer than 100 pass attempts. He doesn’t even need to play full games, often times he dominates for a half then gets to rest.
