With Vandy in the rearview, the Wildcats look ahead to their matchup against the #1 team in the country

NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Kentucky Arden Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky took care of business and picked up a win yesterday against the Vanderbilt Commodores following a very emotional week.

But with that game in the rearview now, the Kentucky Wildcats face their toughest test of the season, a road trip to Tuscaloosa for a matchup with the #1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

Alabama, sitting at 6-0, had yesterday off after its matchup with LSU was postponed due to COVID-19.

The Tide are led by QB Mac Jones, a familiar name to many Kentucky fans as Jones was once committed to Kentucky before flipping to Alabama. In his first year as starter, Jones has found a lot of success within the Alabama offense, passing for nearly 2,200 yards with a 78.5 percent completion rate and 16 touchdowns compared to two interceptions.

But as with every year, there are weapons and elite talent spread throughout this Alabama roster, so no doubt that Kentucky will have its hands full trying to keep up with the Tide.

But if Kentucky were to pull this upset off, it would be one of the more shocking results of the college football season. ESPN’s FPI gives Kentucky only a 3.9 percent chance of leaving Tuscaloosa with a victory.

Still, anything can happen, and hopefully the Cats have a good week of practice leading up to this game.
