How did Alabama football look vs. Kentucky?

It has been two weeks since Alabama football has played a game, and fans were very excited to see the team on Saturday. They did what they needed to do vs. the Wildcats, but they will easily face tougher opponents later in the year. If you want to beat teams like Florida and Clemson, you need to dominate vs. Kentucky.

Things looked a little rusty against the Wildcats, but they still did good things on Saturday. Let’s break down the weekly Alabama football report card against UK. Alabama passed, but did they ace the test? Let’s start with a surprising bright spot for the Crimson Tide.

Tight Ends: A

All season, we have seen Miller Forristall be the receiving tight end as the other options have been blockers. Jahleel Billingsley was a constant force in the passing game for the Crimson Tide, and he made the most of his opportunities.

The rest of the tight ends did well in their traditional roles. We will see how much of Billingsley we get in future games. he thrives with the football in his hands, and he has the agility of a receiver. He had a nice hurdle on one of his first catches, and he continued to succeed as the game progressed.

All in all, the addition of Billingsley to the passing game is just what Alabama football needs. He adds another wrinkle to this offense that makes it harder to defend. You can stop one or two things that Alabama does, but it is impossible to stop everything.
