In advance of Saturday's matchup between No. 1 Alabama and Western Kentucky, we'll take a look at the top five storylines for the Hilltoppers.

1. Holding the line: Western Kentucky matches up OK against Alabama's defensive line in terms of size, but the same can't be said for the other side of the ball as the Tide hold a 45-pound advantage on average.

2. Bend but don't break: Defensive coordinator Lance Guidry employs a 4-3 defense that will allow itself to bend, but not break. The Hilltoppers allowed just 10 points to Austin Peay.
