At the risk of getting called “rat poison” by Nick Saban, the Alabama-Kentucky has not been in doubt since the Crimson Tide notched a three-score lead in the second quarter.

The second half has continued to be all Bama. Despite it being a blowout at Bryant-Denny Stadium, Smith continued to be used as UA’s punt returner. Media and fans alike questioned Nick Saban taking the injury risk of having Smith on the field with the victory already secured. No one wants to see Smith get injured on a return play like Jaylen Waddle’s season-ending injury.
