The No. 24 Mississippi State Bulldogs and No. 6 Alabama Crimson Tide meet up in Week 8 at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET and the game will air on ESPN. The Crimson Tide will look to get back on track coming off a loss as they get ready for next week’s bye.

Alabama (6-1, 3-1 SEC) allowed a game-winning field goal in the final seconds of a 52-49 loss to the Tennessee Volunteers for its first defeat of the season as Bryce Young completed 35-of-52 passes for 455 yards with two touchdowns.

Alabama is a 21-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -1650 on the moneyline. That makes Mississippi State a +950 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 61.
