Just when things were looking up for Mississippi State football, you know what happened.
Alabama happened — that’s what.
A week ago the Bulldogs were feeling good after upsetting Texas A&M. By Saturday afternoon, they couldn’t get out of Tuscaloosa fast enough.
The Crimson Tide delivered a 51-3 beatdown. The loss dropped Mississippi State to No. 11 in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll.
“Alabama obviously has a great football team,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said after the loss. “As I said, they have great players from top to bottom. Their guys that aren’t even on the field, can’t get on the field, they’ll probably start for most teams in the country.”
The 26-person panel consists of voters from SEC Country and the national media.
The Bulldogs (4-6) will try to regroup this week when Arkansas comes to Starkville, Miss.
Check back next week for our weekly installment of the SEC Country Power Poll.
