Jahmyr Gibbs had a special performance on Saturday, but the running back gave lots of praise to others on the team, most notably quarterback Jalen Milroe.

Gibbs was asked about the message to Milroe as he went in for an injured Bryce Young.

“Just be you, you’re built for this,” said Gibbs. “You’ve been doing this your whole life, ain’t nothing going to change. We got your back.”

Gibbs also spoke on Milroe’s composure throughout the game.

“Jalen be turnt up, you know he got us all hype, but for the most part he was calm, he knew what to do," said Gibbs. "He knew his job so we got behind him and we took off from there.”

Arguably, the biggest play of the game came early in the fourth quarter, when Milroe pulled off a 77-yard rush on 3rd-and-15.

“I think it said a lot about him, he knows what to do. He knows how to make big plays happen, for Jalen any big play can happen at any time with his legs and arm,” said Gibbs.

Gibbs and Milroe were a dynamic duo on the ground, combining for 297 yards and three rushing touchdowns.

Alabama looks to continue that success next week as the Tide welcomes Texas A&M to Bryant-Denny Stadium.
