Tuscaloosa, Ala. – Any team can be beaten on any given Saturday in college football given the right circumstances and situation. Even when the statistics show that one team is a heavy favorite over another team, the actual game still has to be played and serves as to why the teams play the game.
No. 16 Mississippi State (6-3, 2-3) will look to be on the positive side of the “any-given Saturday” theory in its matchup on Saturday afternoon when the Bulldogs enter Bryant-Denny Stadium to face No. 1 Alabama – a team that has a proven track record of competing at the highest level when the lights are on and when it matters the most.
