Expert Picks


Kentucky fans saw their team face a top-10 opponent already this season and that game resulted in a 51-13 blowout loss at Georgia. While the team’s recent win over Mississippi State provided some hope, it’s difficult to think of reading a headline on Saturday afternoon that reads “Kentucky upsets No. 8 Alabama” with any seriousness. Maybe head coach Mark Stoops and his team can make it close, but this is a game Alabama always wins.

Final Score: Alabama 31, Kentucky 16
