TUSCALOOSA, Ala. --- Former Alabama quarterback Andrew Zow signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) on Thursday.
"I'm really excited about the opportunity to play in the CFL," Zow said. "I'll be in camp on the 26th of May."
After playing sparingly in the first eight games of the 2001 season, Zow, Alabama's career passing attempts, completion and yardage leader, came in for an injured Tyler Watts in the Mississippi State game and led the Tide to victory. He then went on to start the final two regular season games, including a 31-7 win over Auburn, to lead Alabama to a 6-5 season and a berth in the Independence Bowl. He quarterbacked the Tide to a 14-13 win over Iowa State in the bowl game.
Zow finished his Tide career with 5,983 career passing yards and 35 touchdowns. He is also Bama's all-time total offense leader with 1,020 plays and 5,958 yards. He was responsible for 39 career touchdowns, 35 passing and four rushing.
