The Alabama Crimson Tide and Mississippi State Bulldogs face off on Saturday in an SEC showdown at Davis Wade Stadium. When these two teams faced off in October of 2020, Alabama won 41-0. 

The Alabama Crimson Tide now have their backs against the wall and another loss knocks them out of the college football playoff. Alabama won their first five games of the season before losing their last game against Texas A&M. The defense really struggled against the Aggies giving up 41 points. The defense was showing some signs of weakness heading into that game, and it was finally attacked. Alabama is averaging 44.3 points while the defense is giving up 22 points per game. Under center for Alabama is Bryce Young and he has thrown for 1,734 yards, 20 touchdowns, and three interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Mississippi State Bulldogs who might be looking for a new coach after this season. The Bulldogs sit with a 3-2 record overall and their last win was on the road against Texas A&M. The defense only allowed 22 points, and that has to be a concern for Alabama in this game.. Mississippi State is averaging 27.8 points while the defense is giving up 25 points per game. Under center is Will Rogers and he has thrown for 1.862 yards, 14 touchdowns, and two interceptions. The top rusher for this team has been Dillon Johnson and he only has 149 yards rushing. On defense, Mississippi State is going to need to slow down the Alabama offense.
