Alabama returns home after a disappointing loss to the Tennessee Volunteers.
The No. 6 Crimson Tide (6-1, 3-1) tumbled five spots in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll and now await another SEC test against the No. 24 Mississippi State Bulldogs (5-2, 2-2).
Both teams will renew their rivalry on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide look to avoid costly mistakes after committing 17 penalties last week. A point of concern is the Alabama defense. The unit has allowed 98 points in their last three games.
Mississippi State will be a tough challenge. The Bulldogs rank eighth in passing offense and are led by junior quarterback Will Rogers. The talented signal-caller ranks third nationally in passing yards (2,324) and touchdowns (23).
Alabama won the last meeting, 49-9, in 2021. The Crimson Tide are on a 14-game winning streak in the series.
