Under the leadership of Tagovailoa, the Crimson Tide played in the College Playoff National Championship game, but lost to Clemson. Tua finished second in Heisman Trophy balloting to winner Kyler Murray, who was selected No. 1 overall in the just completed 2019 NFL Draft.

Tua is also the 5 to 2 favorite to win the Heisman this December ahead of Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence who has odds of 7 to 2.

Murray opened at 4 to 5 to be drafted No. 1 overall in 2019 and closed at an incredible 1 to 25 before sportsbooks took him off their boards.
