'Bama's focus: Improvement, not blow out

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban said he's not concerned about style points when the third-ranked Crimson Tide play Kentucky on Saturday, though the game against the Wildcats could give a slight indication on how his team stacks up against top-ranked Florida.

The Gators rolled Kentucky 41-7 last Saturday, taking a 31-point lead in the first quarter and never looking back. The Crimson Tide stress they're not worried about trying to match Florida's dominating performance, saying simply winning to remain unbeaten would be enough.

The Wildcats gave the Crimson Tide all they could handle last year. Alabama held on for a 17-14 win to extend its dominance in a series that dates back to 1917. The Crimson Tide lead the all-time series 34-2-1 and have lost in Lexington just once in the last 87 years.
