Good afternoon, Stark Vegas! It’s CFP National Championship night and it’s the third edition of Alabama vs. Clemson. It should be a great battle between two young quarterbacks and I can’t wait to watch.
Before we hit some national headlines, let’s look at some State results.

MBB rises to No. 14 in AP Poll
Head coach Ben Howland’s Bulldogs rose up three spots as they sit at 14-1 before they begin their SEC slate.
The tail of this week will bring a lot more events, so these articles will have a lot more Mississippi State-related stories. Now let’s get into the national headlines.
