Alabama vs Texas came down to Bryce Young’s heroics

AUSTIN, Texas — Sometimes, elite athletes cannot explain their own moves. They are incapable of understanding their own innate ability. They can’t tell you how they made this play or that, how they did something that no normal person could ever do.

That’s why, seated before a hoard of media members, Bryce Young was stumped.

“I can’t tell you,” he said. “It’s instinct.”

Instinct is why top-ranked Alabama survived an incredible scare from Texas on Saturday in the sweltering heat of Darrel K. Royal Stadium—a 20–19 thriller that ended with a 33-yard, game-winning field goal from kicker Will Reichard.
