Alabama Football has won seven consecutive games, progressively gaining more momentum with every passing week. The Crimson Tide looks to keep the winning streak alive this week as it goes on the road to play the Kentucky Wildcats.
Last week, Alabama came off its bye week to beat LSU by a score of 42-28. The Tide further cemented its reputation as a second half team, closing the game on a 21-0 scoring run.
None of last week’s bold predictions came to fruition, yet Alabama found other ways to get a decisive win. First, I predicted that red zone stops would be critical. Instead, Bama did a good job of keeping the Tigers out of the red zone. LSU got inside the 20 just twice, scoring both times.
Next, I guessed that Alabama would score a non-offensive touchdown for the second straight game. While it failed to do so, a Terrion Arnold interception in the fourth quarter led to a touchdown just three plays later and proved to be a deciding factor in the game. Even without a non-offensive score, Bama was able to post 42 points in the win.
Finally, I didn’t think the game would evolve into a true shootout. For a while, it did just that. Ultimately, the final point total of 70 surpassed my expectation.
Let’s take a look at my three bold predictions for Alabama Football against Kentucky.
