Bryce Young led his team to a 10-2 regular season- two plays away from being 12-0 and being guaranteed another playoff appearance.

He was the best in college football last season. He is the best in college football this season. Although there is some small space for debate, a legitimate claim is Bryce Young is the best Alabama Crimson Tide QB of all-time.
