In the Tide's matchup against Mississippi State, Tagovailoa led the team to a 35-7 lead (14-of-18, 256 passing yards, 2 touchdowns) before leaving the game after a sack that saw his knee driven into the ground, causing his hip to dislocate and fracturing the posterior wall, as well as suffering a broken nose and concussion. He was carted off the field and flown to a Birmingham hospital before undergoing surgery in Houston two days later. In January 2020, Tagovailoa announced that he would forgo his senior year and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
Tagovailoa was invited to the NFL Combine but did not participate in any drills due to him not being medically cleared at the time, but stated that he had planned to participate at his pro day in April before it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was one of 58 players invited to the draft, which was held virtually due to social distancing regulations arising from the pandemic, where he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the fifth overall pick. As his college number 13 is retired by the Dolphins in honor of Dan Marino, Tagovailoa switched to No. 1 to begin his NFL career. On May 11, 2020, Tagovailoa agreed to a 4-year deal with the Dolphins worth $30.28 million featuring a $19,578,500 signing bonus and a fifth year option.
Tagovailoa's younger brother, Taulia, is a quarterback for the Maryland Terrapins. He transferred there in 2020 after spending a year at Alabama as Tua's backup in 2019. Tagovailoa's cousins also play football, with Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa playing defensive line at Notre Dame, and Adam Amosa-Tagovailoa playing offensive line at Navy.
Tagovailoa won several other awards and honors for the 2018 season, including the Maxwell and Walter Camp Awards, as well as being named a finalist for the Heisman trophy. In 2019, he suffered a dislocated hip that prematurely ended his season. Despite the severity of the injury, he was drafted by the Dolphins with the fifth pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. He is notably a left-handed quarterback despite being right-handed, which was taught to him as a child by his father.
As a true freshman, Tagovailoa was the backup to sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts throughout the 2017 season. However, he experienced significant playing time due to a couple of blowout victories for the Crimson Tide. On September 9, he made his collegiate debut against Fresno State in a home game at Bryant–Denny Stadium. In the 41–10 victory, he finished 6-of-9 for 64 yards and his first career passing touchdown, which was a 16-yard pass to wide receiver Henry Ruggs III. On September 23, in a 59–0 victory against Vanderbilt, he got more playing time and recorded 103 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. In the next game, against SEC West rival Ole Miss, he recorded his first collegiate rushing touchdown in a 66–3 victory. In the annual rivalry game against Tennessee, he finished with 134 passing yards, one passing touchdown, one interception, and one rushing touchdown in the 45–7 victory. On November 18, in a game against Mercer, he threw for three passing touchdowns in the 56–0 victory. On January 8, 2018, he replaced Hurts in the second half of the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship due to ineffective play by Hurts. He threw the game-winning 41-yard touchdown pass in overtime to another true freshman, wide receiver DeVonta Smith as the Crimson Tide defeated the Georgia Bulldogs; 26-23 claiming their 17th National Championship. He finished the game 14-of-24 for 166 passing yards, three passing touchdowns and one interception, along with 27 rushing yards on 12 attempts. Tagovailoa was named the Offensive MVP of the game.
On September 1, 2018, Tagovailoa made his first career start at the season's opening game, against Louisville, in Orlando, Florida. He finished 12-of-16, with 227 passing yards and two touchdowns in the 51–14 victory, before Jalen Hurts replaced him in the third quarter. During Alabama head coach Nick Saban's weekly Monday press conference following the victory, he announced Tagovailoa as the starter for The Crimson Tide's home opener against Arkansas State on September 8. In the 62–7 victory over Ole Miss, he was 11-of-15 for 191 passing yards and two touchdowns to go along with 47 rushing yards. He continued his efficient season against Texas A&M with 387 passing yards, four passing touchdowns, and a rushing touchdown in the 45–23 victory. In a limited role against Louisiana, he was 8-of-8 passing for 128 passing yards and two passing touchdowns in the 56–14 victory. In the next game against Arkansas, he had more passing touchdowns than incompletions as he went 10-of-13 for 334 passing yards and four passing touchdowns in the 65–31 victory. Following the regular season, he finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting to Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray, but he won the Walter Camp Award and Maxwell Award for 2018, both awarded to the top player in college football. While recovering from the high ankle sprain he suffered during the SEC Championship against Georgia, Tagovailoa put on a nearly flawless offensive performance against Oklahoma in the 2018 Orange Bowl (24-of-27 with 318 yards passing, 4 TDs and 0 INTs) to lead the Tide to their 4th consecutive CFP National Championship appearance. He was also named Offensive MVP of that game. In the 2019 National Championship loss (44-16) against Clemson, Tagovailoa went 22-of-34 with 295 passing yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs. He also set a new NCAA FBS passer rating record of 199.4 for the season, surpassing the record 198.9 set by Baker Mayfield in 2017.
Tagovailoa was deemed a four star recruit during the 2017 recruiting cycle and was ranked the top high school prospect in the state of Hawaii. He attended Saint Louis School in Honolulu, the same school as 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, where Mariota served as a mentor to him when they were growing up in Hawaii. He had 17 offers from colleges to play on a college football scholarship, including UCLA, Oregon, and Colorado, eventually enrolling in the University of Alabama in January 2017.
His main inspiration as a child was his grandfather, Seu, who was respected enough in the local Samoan community that he was regularly addressed as "Chief Tagovailoa". Seu believed that Tua would eventually grow into a football star, and he requested that he visit him after every game to give him a report, no matter the time of day. Tua briefly considered quitting football after Seu's death in mid-2014, until he and his father agreed that he could best honor him by continuing to play.

He is of Samoan descent and was born and raised in Hawaii, where he attended Saint Louis School in Honolulu.

Tuanigamanuolepola Tagovailoa (/ˌ t ʌ ŋ ɡ oʊ v aɪ ˈ l oʊ ə / TUNG -goh-vai-LOA ; was born on March 2, 1998 in ʻEwa Beach, Hawaii to Galu and Diane Tagovailoa, the oldest of four children in a Samoan family. He was said to have grown up with an intense interest in football with his parents noting that he would sleep with a football under his arm every night as a small child. During Pop Warner games when he was eight years old, when his peers could typically throw a football little more than 10 yards, he routinely threw passes more than 30 yards.
Tagovailoa left the Tide's sixth game against Tennessee early in the 2nd quarter after suffering a high ankle sprain. He underwent surgery to repair the ankle the following day, and did not play in the next game against Arkansas (a 48-7 victory led by QB Mac Jones). Tagovailoa returned three weeks post-surgery to play in the 46-41 loss to top-ranked LSU. Despite some struggles (a fumble and INT) in the first half of that game, Tagovailoa rebounded after halftime to finish 21-of-40 with 413 passing yards, 4 TDs and 1 interception.
