Kentucky vs Alabama Preview

There was a time when Alabama won games with a stingy defensive unit and the offense was simply a complement to their dominance. However, things have changed in Tuscaloosa and the SEC as a whole. The Crimson Tide have the No. 3 scoring offense in the nation at 47.2 points per game.

“Its tough, the game has changed, and the rules have changed,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “We do not play wad ball anymore where everyone is in a small box, and 11 players have to block somebody for a play to be effective for a 3-5-yard gain. I think the spread makes you defend 53-yards wide and 100-yards deep. The rules in college football have changed as I’ve said before, and I’m not saying this in a negative way, but RPO’s create a lot of run pass conflicts for defensive players, and the fact that you can block downfield, throw the ball behind the line of scrimmage, and the way that offensive coaches have utilized those things to create plays for the offense is difficult to defense.”

Kentucky is a team that has earned its reputation on defense, despite not much going as planned this year. The Wildcats stopped a two-game skid last week, upending Vanderbilt 38-35.

“Felt like we did some really good things and improved offensively. Defensively, terribly inconsistent again,” Kentucky skipper Mark Stoops said. “Wasn’t real happy with the overall result. Felt like we did some good things at times but then late in the game got extremely sloppy and gave them some late scores that let it become closer than it should have been.”

He knows his Kentucky squad is in for a whole new test against the Tide.

“We are working extremely hard to get ready for an unbelievable opponent in Alabama,” Stoops said. “We all know what they are this year and what they’ve been for quite a few years. Nick (Saban) does a remarkable job of reloading. They are an extremely football team, very well coached. Offensively, maybe as good an offensive team as I’ve seen since I’ve been a head coach and a coordinator.”

Alabama had some bad news when running back Trey Sanders was involved in what was dubbed a serious car crash. The car Sanders was traveling in was T-Boned, according to Saban.

“He got T-boned in his car. He wasn’t driving, but they were just pulling out to go across an intersection and he got hit on his side,” Saban said via 24/7 Sports. “We’re thankful. He’s got some very serious injuries, but everything has worked out very well. I think he’ll make a full recovery, but this is probably gonna be a several month type thing. He had a hip injury, but not the same kind that Tua had, so there shouldn’t be any question about his recovery.”

Alabama is a whopping 32-point favorite for the matchup.
