Bryce Young surprisingly threw a couple of interceptions (his first two of 2022) versus Louisiana-Monroe, but he threw for 236 yards and three touchdowns on just 13/18 passing while also adding another rushing touchdown. Young will now start his second season of SEC play as Bama’s starting quarterback this week.
