Top Ranked Alabama will look to remain unbeaten as they host Mississippi State on Saturday. The Tide did not play well against the Bulldogs last year but the two teams are vastly different this season. Mississippi State is just playing out the string while the Crimson Tide are playing for a national title. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Alabama at Home.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban still has respect for the Bulldogs, despite their record. “Mississippi State is a very good, physical team. They are probably two points away from being the second-place team in our division.” Saban said, “They have two one-point losses to some pretty good teams in the SEC. They play tremendous football on defense. They’ve got a lot of experience. They’ve got a lot of starters back. They are rated in the Top 20 in the country in lot of those areas.”
Alabama has lost the last two years against Mississippi State and those losses don’t sit well with some of the players including quarterback John Parker Wilson. “We know that they’ve beaten us the past two years. We want to go out there and win the game and keep doing what we’ve done this season.” Parker Wilson said, “We’ve kind of had a bad taste in our mouths for the past couple years. The Arkansas State game was kind of payback for the game last year against ULM. We just have to take the mentality that we haven’t done anything yet. We still have a lot to do and a lot to accomplish this season.”
