    CFN: Mississippi State vs. Alabama Fearless Prediction, Game Preview

    Be very, very, very careful with this.

    The timing is right for an Alabama clunker.

    It’s beaten up a bit – from Tagovailoa’s knee, to Harris’s ankle, to dealing with a physical win over LSU – and it’s way overdue for a little bit of an exhale. There’s no down game in this program and under this coach, but … Alabama is in the SEC Championship now. Coming off the emotional road win, there can’t help but be a wee bit of a let down.

    But the talent will come through, and the Tide will get the win and keep on rolling. However, it’s about to deal with a defense that can hold up, and Fitzgerald will be an issue.

    Expect this to be a bit more of a fight than we’ve seen so far.

    I don't think it will be as close as Fiutak believes, but I'll take it!

    To be fair, I think a lot of media people had LSU scoring 17 or more last week. I take it with a grain of salt.

    CA's BAAACK!!


    I will take it as well. The defense is playing great ball now. I did see that MSU has been trying to get the passing game on point. We will see if that will hold up on this defense who is playing with the confidence of Mike in the Finals.

    This week's game will be a gut check. Coming off an emotional game against LSU and facing a tough defense with a dangerous QB. I remember how tough it was in 2014 when MSU was #1 right after LSU. Hopefully we put this out of reach early.

    I'll be stunned if they can hold you to 30 points, but I understand his train of thought.

    You know, I think this team is just too good to have a big enough "off" night to make this real close. But, it probably would be "just what the Dr. ordered" for CNS to have something to fuss about going into our last few games.

    I doubt it's the blowout we'd like to see (and really need to let our banged up guys rest), but I just don't see MSU hanging with this team.

    Can they make Tua play in the 4th quarter? If they can, I think that'll signal they've had a good game. I hope we see Jones by the middle of the 3rd.

    They said this BS about LSU, Miss St loses big and we keep rolling. Until someone actually scares us I am not concerned with the talking heads. They are trying to make games sound close to get viewers, this game is done by halftime for sure.

    After the big LSU win the players have been exposed to probably as much "Rat Poison" as they've ever seen. It could have some effect and the game might be closer than some expect. No upset here though. Bama wins.

    It was tough because it was MSU and they were #1. Bama was on a high against them too of going down to Baton Rouge and winning that game in OT. We jumped out early and big on MSU and it took all we could to stay on top in the end. I wish that team would have won it all. Blake Sims was the story of that season.

    Anyway, I see a tough game in this one with us pulling away in the 2nd and 3rd quarter. Only concern I have is the injuries. The bug is biting at a bad time.

    I think this Bama team has a real, "we're gonna beat your brains out" mentality on both sides of the ball and at every position. Doesn't mean it will always happen but I don't see a let down either. They couldn't outscore us w/Dak and don't see it happening here. Bama rolls.

    The good news is that State isn't playing for anything...... They are the somewhere in the 4th-8th place range in the conference....for bowl slotting.... I think if we get 2 scores ahead -- they phone it in.....

    I can tell you right now if the Nick Fitzgerald that I've seen for most of the year (in the passing game) shows up Saturday. We will hang a goose egg on State just like we did the Who's. I watched him against LSU and the guy struggles at the forward passing thing. It was atrocious.

    One thing that I haven't seen mentioned much about this game is the coaching staffs. Gattis was co-OC for Penn State last year. He should be very familiar with everything Moorhead wants/likes to do.
