The Alabama offense had its best performance of the season against Kent State. The Crimson Tide put up 41 first-half points before cruising to a 48-0 win. 

That offense, led by true freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts, continues to improve each week as it gains experience. Much of that comes in the timing with receivers and an improved understanding of the offense.

One of Hurts' top targets is wide receiver Calvin Ridley. The sophomore has seen his quarterback improve quite a bit in his first month of college.

"Jalen, he's getting way better. Every week he's developing. He's knowing his plays a lot better, and he's just playing fast. I told him that first game, you gotta play faster. Every game he's getting faster and faster."

The Alabama offense should take another step forward against the Southeastern Conference's worst defense statistically in Kentucky. That game kicks off at 6:00 PM on ESPN.
