2020 Alabama vs Mississippi State
Alabama Football Podcast breaks down Coach Nick Saban’s birthday bash featuring tricks and treats for the Pirate Bullies from Starkville #Hail State.
In this episode Alabama Football Podcast breaks down the Tide’s balanced and dominant performance against the Bulldogs of Mississippi State.
The Alabama Defense rose to the occasion against a game and potentially effective Mississippi State Air Raid passing attack. At the least, the game represented an opportunity for the Tide secondary to step up. And step up they did. The Alabama secondary played dime (6 defensive backs), all night, featuring a blend of zone and man coverage principles. 60 minutes and three turnovers later and the Tide defenders recorded their first shut on the season. A feat most considered improbable three short weeks ago.
Alabama continues to feature an effective and balanced offense as well. Scoring only passing touchdowns a week after posting only rushing scores belies the in-game balance over the last four weeks. With or without Waddle, this Tide Offense poses problems.
