TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – After an off day on Monday, Alabama returned to the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields Tuesday afternoon to begin preparations for Saturday’s home contest with the University of Louisiana.

Saturday’s matchup with the Ragin’ Cajuns at Bryant-Denny Stadium will air on the SEC Network at 11 a.m. CT with Taylor Zarzour and Matt Stinchcomb in the booth and Kris Budden working the sidelines.

The sophomore signal-caller threw for a career-high 387 yards and four touchdowns on 22-of-30 passing and rushed for a fifth score in the Tide’s 45-23 victory.

Jeudy was one of 11 players added to the Biletnikoff Award watch list by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation on Tuesday. The Deerfield, Beach, Fla., native leads the Tide in receiving this season with 17 receptions for 365 yards and six touchdowns.
