Well that was a lot of fun. A real blast.
As usual, Mississippi State gets the benefit of playing Bama right after their annual slugfest against LSU, and Alabama, as usual, comes out a bit flat. Outside of 2 huge throws to Calvin Ridley, the Tide offense has been unable to get any semblance of a running game going while the MSU offense is running right up the throat of the Tide defense and extending drives.
Dan Mullen is doing his best to run clock and make this game as short as possible so that State can take advantage of Alabama’s slow start, and the two teams entered halftime with a score of 14-14.
Here’s to hoping the depleted Alabama defense solidifies itself up the middle and forces MSU to try and pass the ball to move it, while Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough find some green field in the second half.
