Tua Tagovailoa continues to play so well that it's becoming hard to blame the Miami Dolphins for tanking. In just the first half of action this afternoon, the talented southpaw set a school record.

Last weekend, Tagovailoa picked apart South Carolina's secondary with 444 passing yards and five touchdowns. Somehow, he might put up better numbers today.

With the first half coming to end between Alabama and Southern Miss, Tagovailoa already has 238 passing yards and four touchdowns.

Tagovailoa has become the first Alabama player in school history to have four passing touchdowns in consecutive games.

His production this season is so remarkable that he has nearly as many touchdown passes as incompletions.

AJ McCarron, Greg McElroy and Jalen Hurts have all had their share of great moments at Alabama. However, none of those quarterbacks mentioned were able to accomplish what Tagovailoa has.

Tagovailoa might not see much action in the second half with the way Alabama is playing against Southern Miss. If he does get the majority of the snaps the rest of the way through, it'll be interesting to see how crazy his stat line looks.

We'll see if Tagovailoa can extend his school record to three-straight games when the Crimson Tide host the Ole Miss Rebels next Saturday.
