TUSCALOOSA, Ala – If there was a question that Alabama football still deserved to be ranked number 1 in the country after three weeks without facing an opponent, that question was answered on Saturday after midday at Bryant-Denny Stadium

After a long break away from the grill, the Crimson Tide toppled the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday by a 63-3 margin

Alabama Red Shirts junior quarterback Mac Jones continued to claim his spot as the Heisman Trophy contender, throwing 16 for 24 for 230, two touchdowns and one interception

However, the main storyline of the Crimson Tide attack on Saturday was main receiver DeVonta Smith In total, Smith totaled 144 yards on nine receptions and two touchdowns

Smith’s first touchdown reception came in the second quarter, a 10-yard reception thrown by Jones The touchdown was Smith’s 32nd of his career, which broke the record for former Crimson Tide receiver Amari Cooper for most receiving touchdowns The second touchdown put Smith at 33, increasing his lead as the strongest wide receiver in Alabama history.

On the ground, senior running back Najee Harris led Alabama with 83 yards on 13 attempts and two touchdowns At the end of the second quarter, Harris ran a 42-yard home run for the longest touchdown of his career with the Crimson Tide

Harris’ second touchdown also brings his season tally to 16, the highest ever for an Alabama running back in the first seven games of the season

Defensively, Alabama got off to a slow start After the first quarter, despite scoring just three points, Kentucky had a total of 121 yards on offense However, the Wildcats were not able to capitalize in the red zone and Alabama’s defense improved as the game went on, keeping Kentucky just 27 yards in the second half, all rushing forward

With the win, Alabama goes 7-0 this season Kentucky drops to 3-5 with the loss
