The Alabama Crimson Tide defeated the Louisville Cardinals in a blowout down in Orlando where the Cardinals offense couldn't not find any momentum on the ground and through the air and defense couldn't stop Alabama's offense led by Tua Tagovailoa.

In his first start of the season, Tagovailoa threw for 227 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed for a touchdown. Jalen Hurts played a few series in the game and passed for 70 yards, but as Nick Saban announced on Monday, Tagovailoa will be the starter this Saturday against Arkansas State.

ESPN's Brad Edwards joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to recap Alabama's victory over Louisville, Tua Tagovailoa's performance, Alabama's defense, biggest takeaways from the first weekend of college football.
