The Alabama Crimson Tide took care of the Mississippi State Bulldogs, setting the stage for another epic battle with LSU.
The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide stay right on track for the BCS National Championship game with a 38-7 win over the 11th-ranked Mississippi St. Bulldogs. Here's the video highlights of the Tide's victory.
T.J. Yeldon started off the scoring for the Tide on the first drive for Alabama with an 11 yard touchdown rush. Mississippi State went back down the field to try and respond, but their field goal attempt was blocked. The Tide immediately capitalized, as A.J. McCarron found Kenny Bell heading to the left corner for 57 yards, putting Alabama up 14-0 through the first quarter.
McCarron would connect with Michael Williams early in the second quarter to give the Tide a three touchdown lead, and Alabama would force three Mississippi State turnovers (including one at the goal-line) to snuff out any hopes of a Bulldog rally.
Alabama will now prepare for their biggest test of the regular season when they head to Baton Rouge to face the LSU Tigers.
