Well, the day has come. Despite all that Mississippi State has accomplished this season, their year will be defined by what they are able to do today against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa. Will we see the Bulldog team of 2012 show up, or is this truly a new team with a new mission? Only one team can come out on top of this game as the leader in the SEC West, and we hope -- no, we pray -- that that team is our MSU when the final horn sounds in just a couple of hours. Before kickoff today, make sure you get ready for today's game with our game preview post and our Keys to Victory, and make sure to check out all of our game week coverage in our Storystream.

Live Online Stream: This is the third (!!!) MSU game on CBS this season, which means no WatchESPN link again this week. CBS does provide a live stream of the game, however, so you can watch it via this lovely link: [MSU vs. Alabama]
Replay: Should this game go well for State today, the first replay available that I see is on Monday, 11/17, at 11:30 a.m. on the SEC Network. It will run again that evening at 10 on SECNet and then Tuesday morning at 4:30 and once more that night at 11 p.m. on ESPNU.
Radio: As always, here are your radio options for today's game.
Odds: It's gameday, and currently the Bulldogs are 9.5-point underdogs to the Crimson Tide according to betting website Oddsshark.com. So far this season, MSU is 6-2 against the spread, covering games against Southern Miss, South Alabama, Texas A&M and Kentucky, beating the spread against LSU and Auburn, and failing to cover against UAB and Arkansas.
