Gary Cosby Jr. - USA Today Sports

Alabama football is off to a hot start for a second straight week.

The Crimson Tide jumped on Kentucky early, and it has a 38-7 lead over Chattanooga at halftime. Jalen Milroe has moved into a tie with former Alabama standout, AJ McCarron, for eighth all-time in school for total touchdowns in a single season.

The sophomore quarterback has 31 total scores. He completed 13 of 16 passes for 196 yards and three touchdowns.

Jam Miller is the Crimson Tide’s leading running back with 71 yards rushing on five carries. Alabama used three backs in the first half, and Jase McClellan and Roydell Williams had a rushing touchdown. Jermaine Burton carries the Tide’s receiver room with 105 yards and a touchdown on three catches. Robbie Ouzts and Malik Benson also caught touchdown passes from Milroe.

Kristian Story, a defensive back, recorded his first career interception on senior day. Chris Braswell, an outside linebacker, was ejected from the game for targeting in the first quarter. He will not miss time next week versus Auburn. Jihaad Campbell, a sophomore, led the Tide’s defense in total tackles (four). Chattanooga scored late in the second quarter, but it has just 103 yards offensively. If it can keep the intensity going, Alabama will have another dominant win with style points for the CFP Committee.
