No. 3 Alabama blitzes Kentucky 38-20

Oct 3, 2009 - 11:28 PM By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

LEXINGTON, Ky.(AP) -- Mark Ingram ran for a career-high 140 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 3 Alabama past mistake-prone Kentucky 38-20 on Saturday.

Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy added a pair of scoring passes as the Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0 SEC) pulled away from the Wildcats (2-2, 0-2) during a dizzying stretch in the second and third quarters when it scored 24 points in just over 5 minutes.

Derrick Locke ran for 76 yards and added another 63 yards receiving for Kentucky but fumbled late in the first half. Alabama's Courtney Upshaw picked the ball up and sprinted 45 yards for a touchdown to give Alabama a 21-6 halftime lead and send the Crimson Tide off to the races.

Alabama turned four Kentucky turnovers into 17 points and had little trouble moving the ball after a sluggish start.
