CBS will pick up Mississippi State vs. Alabama as part of their Saturday doubleheader, completing Saturday's SEC TV coverage.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Mississippi State fans are encouraged to wear maroon for the "True Maroon" game.

The rest of the SEC schedule for Saturday has now been set as well.
