Disaster struck for No. 1 Alabama in the first half against longtime rival Tennessee as star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was knocked out of the game with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
The Heisman Trophy contender appeared to suffer the injury when he was sacked at the 6:44 mark of the second quarter by the Volunteers' Greg Emerson. He would stay in the game for one more play before Alabama took a timeout and he headed for the medical tent.
He then went to the locker room with about four minutes remaining until halftime. He was replaced by Mac Jones.
Nick Saban did not have a full update on Tagovailoa during his interview before halftime but said the QB had "a twisted ankle of some kind."
The Crimson Tide led 21-10 at the time of Tagovailoa's injury. He had completed 11-of-12 passes for 155 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.
