Kentucky’s on the road against Alabama this weekend, and coach Nick Saban is making sure his team doesn’t overlook the Cats and running back Boom Williams.

Reporter Ben Jones says Alabama’s coaches are shouting Boom’s 8 yards per carry stat at the defense during this week’s practices and Saban told the media Williams may be the best back they’ve faced this season.

Another factor in stopping Williams is the arrest of Alabama’s star linebacker Tim Williams, who was arrested on gun charges Thursday morning.

It’s unclear yet if Williams will miss Saturday’s game.

Chip Cosby and Matt Jones discussed if Boom will be able to run wild on the Crimson Tide Saturday.
