Tua Tagovailoa took an early lead in the Alabama quarterback competition, according to a report.

Alabama on Saturday held one of its two fall scrimmages. Though they are not open to the media, that didn’t stop AL.com’s Matt Zenitz from writing about and reporting on the event.

Zenitz says he was told Tagovailoa “threw at least three touchdowns with no interceptions” and that Jalen Hurts “had three interceptions and didn’t account for any touchdowns.”

He also pointed to a tweet from former Alabama DB Will Lowery, who tweeted the following about the competition:

Many have expected Tagovailoa to win the job after seeing how well he performed against Georgia last season. There was speculation that Hurts could even transfer out of the program despite being so successful in his first two seasons, though that did not happen. However, Hurts recently made some headlines when he was critical of the Bama coaches’ handling of the QB situation.
