Alabama laying 5 TDs a bargain?

No. 1 Alabama is a 35-point favorite against Kentucky, but ESPN's Phil Steele still likes the Crimson Tide to cover at home against the Wildcats. Why? Defense is the name of the game. Week 5 best bets (Insider)

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Alabama head coach Nick Saban on Les Miles firing. Evaluating the landscape of college football right now "I don't think things like this surprise me." Saban said that doesn't mean he agrees with it. He thinks that firing a head coach during the season "probably isn't the best way to go about it." Saban has had a lot of respect for Miles for a long time and thinks that there's a better way to handle that situation. Saban mentioned Miles' impressive winning percentage (77 percent) and added that "College football doesn't need to do these kinds of things, but what I think doesn't really matter."

Allen is highest Tide player in #CFBrank

Alabama DL Jonathan Allen has three sacks and four QB hurries so far, good enough to jump nine spots to No. 6 in our player ranking. Where do DB Eddie Jackson and WR Calvin Ridley rank? Updated #CFBrank

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Increasingly, you hear references to the "Nick Saban effect" and the way his four national championships in the past seven years has ratcheted up pressure on coaches like never before. Well, with Les Miles' firing at LSU, that means there have been a staggering 24 head coaching changes in the SEC since Saban arrived at Alabama in 2007. And seven of the coaches leaving or being fired had won either a national title or SEC title during their career.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Kentucky-Alabama series is one of the most lopsided in SEC history. The Crimson Tide hold a 36-2-1 all-time record in the series. The Wildcats head to Tuscaloosa this weekend, a place where they've never won. Although the programs don't share much resemblance, they do have one thing in common: Bear Bryant is the winningest coach at each school.
