Following Alabama's victory over LSU Saturday night, CBS announced it would carry the matchup between No. 20 Mississippi State and No. 4 Alabama in the 2:30 pm CT time slot on Saturday. CBS picked up last year's matchup between the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide, a 25-20 win for Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Also on hand in Starkville will be SEC Nation. The show will air live from The Junction starting at 9am CT.
The A-team of CBS broadcasters will be on hand in Starkville as Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson will be in the booth, and Allie LaForce will be on the sidelines.
