Alabama 48, Kentucky 7 – Final

Top-ranked Alabama survived a slow start before cruising to a 48-7 win in its first meeting against Kentucky since 2009.

After a pair of red-zone turnovers en route to a scoreless first quarter, the Tide blitzed the Wildcats in the second quarter to take a 24-0 lead into halftime.

The backfield combo of T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake combined to rush for 230 yards and four scores, and Alabama’s defense yielded just 170 yards of total offense.

Alabama improves to 6-0 and will face Arkansas for its homecoming next weekend. Kentucky drops to 1-5 and gets a bye before travelling to face Mississippi State on Oct. 24.
