Alabama Keeps its SEC West Record Perfect Despite Adversity
The Alabama Crimson Tide defeated the Mississippi State Bulldogs 30-6 to bounce back from its defeat from last week. Alabama head coach Nick Saban was pleased with the way the defense played throughout the contest and commended the team for answering the bell despite missing numerous players to injury.
"I think the guys got a lot of pride in what they do. The whole emphasis is get back to playing for 60 minutes, don't look at the scoreboard. Quit worrying about outcomes and play one play at a time and keep playing in the game. I thought they tried to do that. I just thought we had some opportunities to make plays in that drive and they took advantage of it."
Alabama played the game without Seth McLaughlin, DJ Dale, Justin Eboigbe, Deontae Lawson, Jaheim Oatis and Kendrick Blackshire. The Tide hopes to get its roster healthy as it rolls into the BYE week.
