ALABAMA at MISSISSIPPI STATE (6 p.m. on ESPN)
Alabama is favored by 14 points.
This is a great opportunity for Alabama to get a sneak peek at the Florida spread. But without Tim Tebow, does it really have any semblance? Many people believe this is a dangerous game for the Tide. Certainly, the matchup of running backs Anthony Dixon and Mark Ingram is intriguing. But it's time for Alabama to start flexing its BCS-worthy muscle again.
Pick: Alabama 30, Mississippi State 13.
