Challenges for Alabama

Alabama was stunned 41-38 by Texas A&M on Saturday in College Station. Now the Crimson Tide will have to face Mississippi State, a team that in their last game defeated the Aggies on their home field. The Bulldogs have the most prolific passing attack in the SEC. The boys from Starkville average 372.4 yards passing per game this season. Sophomore quarterback Will Rogers leads the State passing blitz. So far this season Rogers has connected on 215 of 284 passes for 1,862 yards, 14 touchdowns and just two interceptions. Alabama’s main challenge is to put the A&M loss behind them and limit Roger’s effectiveness.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
