These two teams hailed from the same conference and were both nationally ranked in the Top 25 before the fall of Alabama. Kentucky is the second-highest ranked team in the SEC at No. 5. The Wildcats are 18-4 overall and 7-2 inside the conference.
Their only two conference losses have come to No. 1-ranked Auburn and No. 25 LSU. They also picked up a win over No. 22 Tennessee so they wouldn’t always lose to conference-ranked opponents.

Alabama was once ranked in the Top 25. The Crimson Tide are 14-8 overall this season and 4-5 inside the SEC, which is why they went down. They showed glimpses of super talent with top-10 wins like against Baylor and Auburn.
However, they followed that up with unranked losses to Mississippi State and Georgia. It will be their third straight top-five game to rebound from a loss to Auburn.
Kentucky should barely win this game with a -1.5 favored spread and a -115 money line. Alabama’s currency line is -105. The projected total Over/Under points scored is 157.5 points.
