    Our best asset is the fact that their offense really isn't very good at all.


    Look at these point totals for MSU's offense:
    UK - 7
    UF - 6
    LSU - 3


    Their offensive stats are inflated by games like last night (45) and 63 points versus SFA.


    We'll win, but I'm glad it's home, and it's gonna be closer than folks think (most likely).
    I agree...............I think Bama wins, but much closer than any other game. Thankfully, even though Bama has some injuries, they aren't season ending, and I think Nick will preach this week about a letdown. Being at home is certainly a plus..............

    We usually are beat up after the LSU game and donít put up as many points. So...34-3.

    If you go by Sagarin's numbers (which have only started bing truly relevant in the last few weeks as the data piled up), Bama should be win by 21.

    Itís possible that you are right. Unless they have a better secondary than LSU this game should be a route.

    All you have to do is look at the burning hulks littering the side of the road to the CFP to see this game is not a lock. Oklahoma stumbled with an inferior Texas and Iowa State somehow upset W Virginia. Purdue KO'd tOSU. Somehow Wash St let a four loss USC upset them. Georgia went into Death Valley and actually played dead. So Ö.. I am not calling a lock on MSU.

    I agree - I think that their defense is better than LSU's defense. They are winning without an offense. I mean, they have no offense. None. So their defense has been pushed like no other in the SEC.

    Alabama wins easily because MSU may not score in the game, but I worry about injuries when facing 2 defenses like this in back-to-back games.

    This is not a Mullen-coached Mississippi State team and Dave Aranda isn't their defensive coordinator...

    Their defensive line will be able to cause us some problems from time to time but, overall, our offensive line will hold their own and our receivers will be able to get open on a regular basis.

    On the other side, the way our front seven is playing their offense will have all the traction of a tricycle with its front wheel suspended in a mud puddle.

    This one's going to get ugly.

    IF we are decently healthy and IF we are focused I'll say it's a 42-10 type game. If injuries affect us and our guys are mentally exhausted from this game then 30-17ish.

    I was worried about this game earlier in the season, because it follows L8U. However, I think last nights victory was easier than the normal LSU game.

    Defense should be fresh, plus the starters haven’t played full games most of the season.

    So, I am now thinking this will be an easy win at home. Roll Tide!

    I think we win big. Whether Tua plays into the 2nd half will be more a factor of how healthy Jalen is. I imagine we would have seen Jalen last night if he had been able to come in. I expect a physical game, but I think our offense will score on them and our defense will shut them down.

    I am having trouble assessing MSU's secondary because they have not played a quality passing attack this season. They're 4th in the nation at pass efficiency defense, top 20 in rush defense, top 40 in sacks, and top 20 in tackles for loss. I happen to think that they're a more lively opposition to our offense than LSU's defense who got slightly oversold by the media over the previous two weeks. They have at least two NFL starters on their DL and the back seven has been solid this year. They're a better defensive unit overall when you consider all three levels than LSU who is really only A+ in the secondary and B quality in the front seven.

    My theory on short-circuiting our offense is being able to cover like LSU could but with at least 1 elite pass rusher who can heat up Tua without having to rush 5 or 6. MSU may be that defense but I'm not sure how to interpret their back end on defense due to competition.

    Our offense is banged up and MSU defense is capable, but this is going to be what we saw last night - part 2.

    MSU offense is pretty one dimensional...think we'll dominate them on defense. Offense will do their part. I could see this being a game where Tua doesn't play again in the 4th quarter as we go back to the friendly confines of BDS.
