Top-ranked Alabama is cruising toward a spot in the College Football Playoff and attempts to run its winning streak to 22 consecutive games when it hosts Mississippi State in Saturday’s SEC game. The Crimson Tide delivered a superb defensive effort in last Saturday’s 10-0 victory over LSU when they held the Tigers to six first downs and 125 total yards.

Sophomore quarterback Nick Fitzgerald accounted for four touchdowns (two passing, two rushing) and passed for 209 yards and rushed for 182 as the Bulldogs cruised up and down the field against Texas A&M. Fitzgerald has thrown for 1,705 yards and 16 touchdowns and rushed for 839 yards and eight scores and his favorite target is senior wideout Fred Ross (54 receptions for 641 yards), who leads the SEC with nine touchdown catches and has caught at least one pass in 31 consecutive contests. Senior defensive end A.J. Jefferson is fifth in school history with 34.5 tackles for loss – including 10 this season – while senior middle linebacker Richie Brown has a team-best 76 tackles.

The Crimson Tide allow just 13.2 points per game and dominated LSU’s offense in their first game without standout senior strong safety Eddie Jackson (broken leg). Sophomore Minkah Fitzpatrick was moved from cornerback to strong safety and he recorded his team-leading fourth interception of the season, while senior defensive end Jonathan Allen and senior outside linebacker Tim Williams share the team lead with seven sacks. Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts is effectively guiding the offense and has passed for 1,656 yards and 11 touchdowns and added 635 yards and 10 scores on the ground.

Alabama has won the past eight meetings and holds a 78-18-3 series edge.

Ross ranks first in Bulldogs’ history with 181 career catches and he needs 19 yards to overtake leader Chad Bumphis (2,270 from 2009-12) for most career receiving yards.

Crimson Tide senior OLB Ryan Anderson ranks third in the SEC with 12.5 tackles for loss.
