The first half was a surgical 27-0 dismantling by the Tide, the second an ugly mess. Still, the defense pitched a shutout and that’s a welcome sight for Alabama fans this season, no matter how sad the Mississippi State offense may be. DeVonta Smith scored four TDs and Mac Jones had another stellar day, completing 77% for 291 yards and the four TDs. The defense allowed only 200 total yards and forced three turnovers, including a pick six by Patrick Surtain II. Six games, six wins, and they now have a bye week to recharge for the home streech.
Most of you will probably choose to watch Zach Wilson and BYU take on WKU, but it’s a pretty thin slate.
