We only have 17 games to pick this week, starting with Saturday at 9 am ET. Make sure you at least have your tie breakers in by then. Deadline for each game pick is 5 minutes before kickoff.
Also, as a way to change things up a bit this year, we will also be featuring staff predictions for the weekly WVU game (or game of interest on the off-weeks). Here are the staff predictions for the Bama/Mississippi St. game (in Gauntlet ranking order with total score in parentheses):
Bama 41, Miss St. 27
The Bulldogs have to prove it to me. I just don't see them having the talent to beat Alabama.
Mississippi State 24 Alabama 21
hoddy toddy gosh almighty
who in the hell are we...HEY!!!
flim flam, bim bam...that's the wrong Mississippi school isn't it?
The team with the Cowbells win in a dog fight of a game
UA 31 MSU 24
If this game was in Starkville, I'd have no problem picking the other Dawgs. I think these two teams are very evenly matched and home field advantage will make a difference. So I'm going with Bama.
Alabama 38 Mississippi State 24
Tight game through the first half, but then Bama cruises.
D White (117)
Bama 34, Miss St 14
Statement game for Alabama and the Tide jump to #1 in the CFP poll on Tuesday.
Miss St. 21 Bama 17
The SEC has begun beating up on itself as usual, and this weekend is the Tide's turn to drop a tough one.
CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA CLANGA

State is catching Alabama at the perfect time as the Tide expended a LOT of energy last week at LSU. That was just a grueling physical test that had to exact a toll. Before the season I said Bama is dead and I'm sticking to it. Dawgs by 10. CLANGA.
