Alabama easily downed Kent State 48-0 on Saturday to remain at the top of the SEC Country Power Poll.
The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0 SEC) played what coach Nick Saban described as a complete game.
The offense scored touchdowns on its first three drives of the hot afternoon inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The defense gave up a big play early, but settled in and shut out the Golden Flashes. Alabama has shut out 17 opponents during Nick Saban’s tenure.
Alabama’s special teams scored the team’s sixth non-offensive touchdown this season.
The win was good enough to please Saban, who is Alabama’s ultimate critic.
Alabama currently owns the nation’s longest winning streak. The Crimson Tide’s last loss came against Ole Miss on Sept. 19, 2015.
Alabama hosts Kentucky next week for homecoming. Look for the Crimson Tide to remain at the top.
