The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs will meet for the 103rd time this weekend

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama returned to the practice field Monday for the first time since the Tide’s 29-0 win at then-No. 3 LSU on Saturday, working for two hours in shells (helmets and shoulder pads) at the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields this afternoon.


The Crimson Tide returns home to face No. 18 Mississippi State on Saturday, Nov. 10 in the first of three games at Bryant-Denny Stadium to close out the regular season. The contest will air at 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS with Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson and Jamie Erdahl on the call.


Alabama and Mississippi State will meet for the 103rd time on Saturday. The Crimson Tide leads the all-time series 82-17-3 (80-18-3 after vacations and forfeits) and has won the last 10 meetings with the Bulldogs.


The Football Writers Association of America named Alabama its national team of the week on Monday following the Tide’s performance against LSU Saturday night in Baton Rouge. The UA defense limited the Tigers to just 196 total yards and recorded its second-straight shutout on LSU’s home field. Alabama has not allowed a touchdown to LSU in the last 11 quarters of play at Tiger Stadium, dating to the first quarter of the 2014 contest. Offensively, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw for 295 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 44-yard score in the win.
