In the second quarter of Alabama football vs. USF, Ty Simpson replaces Tyler Buchner at quarterback.

In Saturday’s Crimson Tide football game in Tampa against South Florida, Tyler  started for Alabama. Jalen Milroe, who threw two interceptions in the Crimson Tide’s loss to Texas, was replaced by him.

Buchner was replaced, at least initially, by Milroe when he left the game in the second quarter. Rather, Alabama’s redshirt freshman Ty Simpson took the field. In the pregame warmups at Raymond James Stadium, Simpson had looked like he was getting offensive reps with the second team.

Simpson, a Tennessee native and five-star prospect, joined Alabama’s 2022 recruiting class. Throughout camp, he fought for the starting position.

In reference to Simpson during camp, Saban stated, “Ty has done a really good job.” “I believe that every quarterback has significantly improved. Ty has, in my opinion, improved. Remaining outcome-oriented and expressing your feelings when things don’t go as planned is, in my opinion, one of the hardest things to stay out of. And I believe it’s one of the things that has helped Ty and all of our quarterbacks get better.

“Mistakes are chances to grow, learn, and improve without getting discouraged or angry about how it will effect the next time around. And he’s done a very good job of it, and I believe that has had a really positive effect on his execution.”

Buchner had a great deal of difficulty in the first half. A long pass to Jermaine Burton in the end zone was among the few passes he failed to complete. Before being replaced, Buchner completed five of fourteen passes for thirty-four yards.

With 4:19 remaining in the second quarter, Simpson took over with Alabama deep into USF territory. Will Reichard’s 30-yard field goal to level the score at 3-3 capped his 13-yard drive in five plays.
