Player Who Missed Huge Kick Writes Letter to Fans


Alabama’s Joseph Bulovas says no one was more disappointed than he was

The Alabama Crimson Tide was down by three points late in the second half of Saturday’s Iron Bowl, which pitted the team against rival Auburn, when Alabama’s Joseph Bulovas missed a 30-yard field goal that would have tied the score. Instead, it remained 48-45 in favor of the Tigers, and that was the final score when Auburn won the game—an upset that meant, for the first time since the College Football Playoff started, Alabama won’t be going, ESPN reports. Bulovas got “some flak” from heartbroken fans, Fox News reports, and he ultimately penned an apology letter to them on Twitter.

“After reflecting on the game, I just wanted to express my apologies to the entire Crimson Tide nation,” he wrote. “Nobody was more disappointed than myself.
