Alabama vs. Mississippi State Football Series History

Alabama leads 85-17-3


Alabama, which just lost to Texas A&M, must travel to the team that most recently defeated the Aggies. You’d think that Mississippi State has the advantage in this game but I believe the loss has lit a fire in the Alabama players. The Tide rolls to a big win.
