Alabama vs. Mississippi State



However, after the game, head coach Nick Saban said the starting quarterback could have returned if needed.

The offense raced to a fast start but mostly stalled from there against the Bulldogs (6-4, 2-4) and the nation's No. 2 scoring defense.

Danzler took a direct shot to Tagovailoa's injured right knee, which has been a source of discomfort for Alabama's Heisman Trophy front-runner over the last month.

Tagovailoa did not return following the hit and was replaced by backup Mac Jones.

Speaking on SportsCenter, Finebaum said that Tagovailoa's knee injury is the one "real concern" that the Crimson Tide have right now. "I think he's OK".

Fresh from a 29-0 victory over No. 9 LSU, the Tide defense hasn't allowed a point in nine-plus quarters.

Across the nation, college football fans will say the Crimson Tide won ugly, beating the No. 16 team, only 24-0. "We need to do a better job of protecting him".

Alabama had five sacks and Mississippi State had four in a rough day for both quarterbacks against two talent-rich defensive lines. He also lost a fumble on a botched exchange with Damien Harris. The 17-points would be enough to win the game and force Alabama to fall for their second straight loss.

In its most recent forecast in September, the Fed envisioned one more rate hike in 2018 and three more in 2019. Powell, who was Trump's hand-picked choice to lead the Fed, has avoided responding directly.

The Bulldogs averaged 213.6 yards on the ground before playing Alabama. The Tide's rushing average dropped to 0.6 yards-per-carry. "We stopped the run pretty well, so I was very pleased with that". "We continue to fight our tails off". They didn't cross Alabama's 40-yard line again.

"One thing we want to do here in the future as a program, is we want to be able to finish a season and play our best ball at the end", Tennesse coach Jeremy Pruitt said. "W$3 hen you're not running it well and you're not moving it in the air and you're not creating explosive plays against a team like this, you give yourself a hard time to win".

Alabama scored touchdowns on its first two drives, consuming more than 10 minutes combined with 156 yards.

The defense held Bulldogs quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, who has the most rushing yards by a quarterback in SEC history, to a career-low rushing day. Mississippi State could only muster 169 yards.

Alabama, at 10-0, is the national title favorite, to be sure. Guard Deonte Brown went down with turf toe.

The victory is the 24th consecutive home win for Alabama, tying the school record set from 1971-74. The mark was initially set from 1971-74 at Legion Field and Bryant-Denny Stadium.
