Top college football predictions for Week 11
Alabama (8-1) has won seven straight contests after losing to Texas in its second game of the season. The Crimson Tide are coming off a 42-28 win over LSU in their second straight 14-point victory. Quarterback Jalen Milroe had his first huge rushing performance of the season, rushing for 155 yards and four touchdowns last week while throwing for 219 yards.
Kentucky last lost three of its last four games and its defense has struggled against the SEC elite. The Wildcats surrendered 40.7 points per game over their last three losses, including allowing 51 points to Georgia. But the Kentucky offense has scored at least 21 points in three straight games. The Crimson Tide are averaging 31.9 points per game this season and this will be another tough offense for Kentucky to contain, which is why Marshall also likes the game to go Over 46 points.
