No. 1 ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs are in their toughest fight since receiving the top ranking. This afternoon, the Bulldogs are trailing at No. 5 Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Bulldogs are going to have to mount a huge comeback if they want to be the first team since 1957 to beat LSU and Alabama at their home stadiums. Mississippi State was the last to do it that year.

It all started to fall a part in the first half when Bulldogs back Josh Robinson had a negative five-yard run that resulted in a 2-0 lead for Alabama. Minutes later, the Crimson Tide led 5-0 following Adam Griffith’s 36-yard field goal.

In the second quarter, Blake Sims hit Amari Cooper for a 4-yard touchdown pass. Bama led 12-0 at this point in the game.

Two minutes later, Derrick Henry scored on a 1-yard touchdown to make it 19-0.

With three seconds left, Bulldogs kicker Evan Sobieski made a 23-yard field goal to make it 19-3 at halftime.
