Eighth-ranked Alabama scored 21 points in the game’s first 10 minutes and the Crimson Tide run away from Kentucky, 49-21, in a game played at Kroger Field on Saturday afternoon.

The loss dropped the Wildcats to 6-4 with two games remaining in the regular season. Alabama is now 9-1.

Running back Ray Davis was limited to just 32 total yards. He had a pair of short touchdown runs. Quarterback Devin Leary passed for 151 yards and one touchdown – a six-yard catch by Tayvion Robinson.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe accounted for six touchdowns, passing for three and rushing for three.

Kentucky will close out the regular season with a pair of road games. The Wildcats visit South Carolina (4-6) next Saturday before battling Louisville on Thanksgiving weekend.
