Alabama football hammers Kentucky 63-3

A slow start, both in pace of play and quality of play, was not enough to knock Alabama off its warpath to the College Football Playoff.

Here are three things we learned in Alabama’s 63-3 win over Kentucky:

Alabama can live without Miller Forristall

UA’s senior tight end has received praise from all corners of the program lately for his development into a more well-rounded tight end. His playing time has reflected that, by far the most of all UA tight ends.

He was nonexistent Saturday; in pads and warmed up but rarely, if ever, on the field for a snap. The reasons for that are currently unknown, but a sophomore made the most of the chase.

Jahleel Billingsley caught three passes for 78 yards in Forristall’s absence. Kendall Randolph and Carl Tucker contributed some respectable blocking, but Billingsley was the only one used as a receiving threat with any regularity.

Should UA have to live without Forristall in future games — and when it has to next year and beyond — it has at least one option who can make an impact as a pass catcher.
