Kentucky Wildcats Game Notes
Kentucky senior QB Terry Wilson completed 13-of-15 passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-35 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. Usually in Kentucky wins, Wilson is able to sit back, not do much, especially through the air, and let his defense and running back friends do their thing. Today, he flipped the script, throwing for a pair of scores and running for another before the game was even 20 minutes old. That helped stake the Wildcats to a 21-7 lead. From there, Wilson and Kentucky's offense reverted to its vanilla ground-and-pound machinations. Kentucky never trailed, but Vandy gave the guise of a close game with two touchdowns in the final 193 seconds of the game. Kentucky travels to Alabama, which got an unexpected by when its game against LSU was postponed, next week.
Alabama Crimson Tide Game Notes
Alabama redshirt sophomore QB Mac Jones completed 24-of-31 passes for 291 yards with four touchdowns in a 41-0 blowout of Mississippi State on Saturday. Jones didn't throw for a touchdown pass the previous week despite having 387 yards against Tennessee. This week he has the lower passing yardage total, but he'll probably trade that for the four scores. All four scoring passes were to DeVonta Smith, who was just on a different level than the Mississippi State defenders on a night he could have put up all-time numbers if Alabama didn't take the foot off the gas. He's now thrown for 16 touchdowns on the season, and his completion percentage remains over 78 percent. Impressive.
