Kentucky Wildcats heads to Tuscaloosa to face the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday night at Bryant–Denny Stadium.

Alabama remains a strong national title contender at 4–0 with wins against USC, Western Kentucky, Ole Miss and Kent State. Head coach Nick Saban asked his players to play a complete game against Kent State, which resulted in a 48–0 shutout. Jalen Hurts went 16 for 24 passing for 164 yards and one touchdown before Blake Barnett entered in relief, finishing the game four for seven with 55 yards and one touchdown. Freshman running back Joshua Jacobs scored his first two touchdowns of the season.

Barnett announced this week that he intends to transfer. 

Kentucky is coming off a victory against South Carolina, which put them at .500 on the year after early losses to Southern Mississippi and Florida to open the season. Quarterback Stephen Johnson completed 11 of 19 passes for 135 yards. Running back Stanley Williams rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown.
