The Flying Death Machine continues to be The Flying Death Machine. The Alabama Crimson Tide defense has now shutout two teams in a row. They were the less dominant part of the team but are is starting to catch up, this after they defeated the Mississippi State Bulldogs, 24-0.

Mississippi State was only able to gain 169 yards of total offense, and was 1-13 on third down. Kylin Hill was the best player on the offense, getting seven carries for 47 yards. Nick Fitzgerald struggled with his passing again going 11-for-20 for 125 yards and obviously no touchdowns.

For the Tide, Tua Tagovailoa had his worst game of the season going 14-for-21 for 164 yards, he did throw a touchdown to Josh Jacobs, but he also threw an interception. Jacobs led the ‘Bama offense going for 97 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown. Damien Harris was also able to punch one in.

Alabama scored on their first and second drive of the game, and honestly it felt like that was it with a little less then three minutes left in the first. Mississippi State was unable to get anything going offensively tallying six three and outs. They were able to move the ball a little right before the half but missed a 41-yard field goal.

Alabama remains undefeated while the Bulldogs fall to to 6-4. Alabama plays The Citadel next week before the Iron Bowl while Mississippi State gets the Arkansas Razorbacks at home before the Egg Bowl as they try to salvage the season.
