Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa sometimes does things that only Tua Tagovailoa can do.

With a 9-0 record for No. 1 Alabama, Tagovailoa played in the fourth quarter for the first time and threw his first interception of the year in Saturday's 29-0 win over LSU. But Tagovailoa has had one constant issue haunting him during his solid Heisman-worthy season: a sprained right knee.

The troubled knee pestered him again on Saturday night as Tagovailoa, wearing a knee brace, dominated against the Tigers. Going 25-for-42, Tagovailoa recorded 295 passing yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He also added 49 rushing yards with one score on three carries.

In the third quarter, Tagovailoa showed off his wheels with a 44-yard touchdown run to put the Tide up 22-0. However, Tagovailoa appeared to be limping as he walked from the end zone to the sidelines. The sophomore entered the injury tent briefly before getting on a stationary bike. Tagovailoa played in the next series, which resulted in a punt.
