Why Alabama Will Win

Alabama is still hardly out of this.

On the flip side, the Crimson Tide now have to go on a tear to show the College Football Playoff types – and the rest of the world – the they really are among the four best teams. That only works with total destruction and annihilation the rest of the way.

The passing game continues to be unstoppable. Totally lost in the loss to LSU was how a hobbling Tua Tagovailoa threw for 418 yards and four scores with big play after big play. The Mississippi State defense doesn’t have the secondary to hold up.

The Bulldogs got picked clean by Auburn’s Bo Nix, allowed four teams in a row to hit 71% or more of their throws – up until Arkansas went Arkansas – and are getting hit by too many deep passes.

As long as Bama is deadly focused, it should be able to assault the MSU defense from the start.

Why Mississippi State Will Win

As LSU just proved, this isn’t the Alabama defense of the past.

It’s very good, very talented, and LSU is at a whole other level, but the Tide can be thrown on, and they have problems against strong, sturdy runners.

They’ve still only allowed over 200 rushing yards once – the blowout win over Ole Miss – and they’re still fantastic overall, but Mississippi State has to come out and establish Kylin Hill right away.

The junior ripped up Arkansas for 234 yards and three scores last week, nailed Texas A&M for 150 yards the week before, an has done a nice job of overcoming the lack of a steady passing game by pounding away.

The Bulldogs are great at taking the ball away, controlling the clock, and …

What’s Going To Happen

They’re bad at getting to the quarterback.

Tagovailoa isn’t exactly a sitting duck, but he can’t be allowed to get comfortable. The Bulldogs don’t have the ability to knock No. 13 off his game.

Expect this to be the Jerry Jeudy game. He had a disappointing day against LSU with a few key drops, and he hasn’t blown up lately, outside of a good day against Arkansas.

11 straight. 2007 was the last time Mississippi State was able to pull off the win over the Tide. It won’t happen this week – Bama rolls as if the LSU game never even happened.
