Nick Saban vs Zach Arnett
Alabama’s 2023 season began with high hopes, but they faced early disappointment with a non-conference loss to Texas. The offensive leadership has been placed in the hands of quarterback Jalen Milroe, despite some errors in his play. Currently, Alabama ranks last among SEC Conference schools in total offense, averaging 365 yards per game.
In their recent victory against Ole Miss (24-10), the Crimson Tide’s defense played a pivotal role. Milroe connected with Jalen Hale on a crucial 33-yard touchdown pass during the third quarter, propelling Alabama to an 18-7 lead and limiting Ole Miss’s rushing yards in the second half.
The Bulldogs have faced multiple challenges this season, particularly following the untimely death of their coach, Mike Leach. Transitioning to a more balanced offensive approach has been a struggle for them, resulting in two losses in their starting conference games, with an average of 27.3 points conceded per game.
In their recent game against South Carolina, the Bulldogs found themselves in an early 14-0 deficit. However, they made a comeback, with quarterback Will Rogers connecting with Lideatrick Griffin for a game-tying 65-yard touchdown pass. Rogers displayed his talent, completing 30 of 48 passes for a remarkable 487 yards.
Alabama has maintained an upper hand over Mississippi State in their matchups since 2007 when they lost in Starkville. While once known for their tough defense, Mississippi State now ranks as the second-worst defense in the conference, providing Alabama with an opportunity to showcase their skills and cover the spread.
