Alabama 34, Kentucky 10: The Crimson Tide plays its first full game without injured linebacker Dont'a Hightower, who is lost for the season. I do believe Hightower's loss will hurt Alabama at some point this season. Just not this week against Kentucky, which ranks 87th in total offense. Alabama will try to jump start its rushing game, which was sluggish against Arkansas last week, leading Greg McElroy to attack through the air. Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson could both rush for 100 yards against the nation's 105th-ranked rush defense. If Alabama can't run the ball effectively this week, that will be a red flag about the offensive line, which for the most part has played better than most people expected.
