Tagovailoa tied a career high with five touchdown passes and threw for a career-best 444 yards to become the first quarterback in school history to throw for 400-plus yards and five touchdowns in the same game. The junior, who was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week, completed 28-of-36 pass attempts in the SEC tilt.
