Kentucky vs Alabama. The names’ of the teams say it all. This is, without a doubt, the highlight of an awesome slate of college football games. I am one of the thousands of member of Big Blue Nation going down to Tuscaloosa for the game. The atmosphere will be electric, as always, especially knowing this is both team’s Super Bowl. With the news breaking that Tim Williams will not play, Alabama’s defense will surely have a huge gap for Boom Williams to run through hundreds of times. Now I like Alabama, but wouldn’t mind seeing Damien Harris get popped in the mouth by a member of Kentucky’s highly-touted defense. This game is “personal” for the Kentucky native.

My prediction? Kentucky might just be too much for Alabama. The Wildcats are just too fast. Alabama’s defense will be scratching their heads all night long while the boys in blue and white are too busy just scoring touchdowns. But how will Alabama’s offense fare? Well, UK’s defense proved against South Carolina what we have thought all year: they are damn good. The Tide will struggle all night to make any moves on the Kentucky defense. Matt Elam will prove why he picked UK over Bama and have a monster day. JD Harmon and Chris Westry will have a pick each, and Jordan Jones will continue his perhaps record breaking season when it comes to tackling the ball carrier. The eyes of the whole country will be on this game, and Kentucky’s defense will be swarming the field and snapping necks. The Cats win this one big, 38-13.
