Alabama Has Decade Of Dominance Over Mississippi State

It should be a surprise to no one but Alabama has routinely beaten up on Mississippi State. The Tide have won the past nine meetings between the two programs with an average scoring margin of +23.6 points per game. They look to make it 10 in a row vs Mississippi State when they travel to Starkville on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Mississippi State is 6-1 ATS in its last 7 games as a double-digit home underdog.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Alabama’s last 10 games against Mississippi State.
  • Mississippi State is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games at home.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts accounted for 447 offensive yards and five touchdowns against Mississippi State last season, as the Tide destroyed the Bulldogs 51-3. Hurts led the offense to a ridiculous 615 total yards and 8.5 yards per play.

It was not pretty but Alabama rode its dinged-up defense to a 24-10 victory over LSU last week. However, the Tide likely lost linebackers Shaun Dion Hamilton and Mack Wilson for an extended period of time while defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick was only used in a situational capacity after being hurt.

Since dropping their first two conference games, Mississippi State has rattled off four straight wins while averaging 37.3 ppg. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald has been humming for the Bulldogs, as the junior has accounted for an average of 283.5 offensive yards per game during the team’s winning streak. That being said, Mississippi State is coming off a lackluster victory over UMass.
