Alabama football needed a victory over one Mississippi school to start its conference schedule right.
Now, it faces another Mississippi school to continue its journey to play for a Southeastern Conference Championship and position itself for the College Football Playoff. Nick Saban leads the Crimson Tide into Saturday’s matchup against Mississippi State at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss. Bulldog fans continue to mourn the passing of Mike Leach, but Zach Arnett has the program with a 2-2 record this season. Mississippi State has been a tough opponent for Alabama in the Saban era.
We have seen physical battles from both schools in the past, and nothing less is expected here.
Alabama released practice footage Tuesday of the players working. Deontae Lawson, a sophomore, suffered a knee injury in the Crimson Tide’s 24-10 victory over Ole Miss. Coach Saban has the inside linebacker as ‘day-to-day’ for the Bulldogs.
Alabama continues with practice Wednesday and Saban’s press conference is at 6:00 p.m. CT.
