Alabama freshman sensation Jalen Hurts has played in quite a few big road games this season, and you’d think LSU’s Death Valley or Tennesee’s Neyland Stadium—two of the nation’s most decibel-rich environments—would have been the loudest.
But not so, according to the young quarterback. He says it was Arkansas’ Razorback Stadium.
The Tide won that game 49-30 in front a crowd of 75,459, which is well over the stated full capacity of 72,000. Hurts passed for 253 yards and 2 touchdowns, and rushed for another two scores in the game, which doesn’t bode well for Washington Saturday in the semifinals.
That game will be played in a front of a similarly large crowd (71,228 official capacity) at the Georgia Dome.
