Alabama versus Mississippi State game preview ahead of matchup

Alabama players have heard the national and local media talk all week.

One player challenged his teammates to live up to the “Bama standard,” and Coach Nick Saban is ready for the response.

RELATED: Nick Saban said he feels Alabama is “no longer viewed as an elite team.”

After encountering Kyle Field, the Tide will be at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss.

The cowbells will be on display; however, we shall see what Alabama’s intensity is. Mike Leach looks to stress the Tide out with the “Air-Raid” offense, but Alabama turned in a great week of practice. Offensively, it is time for Bill O’Brien to have balance and creativity. This matchup will tell a lot about Alabama moving forward. The Bulldogs have a good offense and a scrappy defense.

Check out the game preview video above via In My Own Words. On Friday, I broke down what the Tide needs to do to return to the win column.
