Alabama is the No. 1 ranked team in college football and have beaten every opponent it has faced so far this season. However, entering this one, the question is not whether they will run over a weaker Wildcats team, the bigger question is — by how much.

The Tide are early 27 1/2-point favorites, but have yet to cover the big spreads this season.

Bama beat up on another second-rate opponent last weekedn, but walked away failing to cover the closing number of 54 1/2 points.

The Crimson Tide walloped Georgia State 45-3 in that outing, and has allowed a total of nine points over its last three games.

That’s going to pose a huge problem for a Wildcat’s offense that must face a defensive unit that is allowing just over 12 points and just under 300 yards per game with four interceptions, three fumble recoveries and six sacks. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Offensively, Alabama is shredding the opposition, averaging 37 points and 405 yards per game.

Led by quarterback A.J. McCaron, who has completed 71 percent of his passes with 10 touchdowns and just three interceptions, the Wildcats defense will have its hands full on Saturday.

Defensively, Kentucky allows 26 points and 391 yards per game.

Meanwhile, the Wildcats offense has been averaging 23 points and 388 yards per game, behind a solid effort from quarterback Jalen Whitlow, who has completed 68 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and a single interception. He is also one of the biggest contributors to the Kentucky running game, averaging around five yards per carry with three touchdowns.

Whitlow rushed for 69 yards and  threw for 178 yards, but it wasn’t enough as the Wildcats suffered a Week 6 loss against South Carolina in their last game, falling 35-28 at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Matt’s Prediction

While the point spread in this one is a big, Kentucky showed they could stand up against a very good South Carolina team last week in a game they were figured to get run over.

However, they will have to play a perfect game to beat Alabama, in a game, if they win, would be the biggest win in the history of the Kentucky football program.

Not likely.

Alabama 41, Kentucky 10
