Mississippi State Bulldogs: 4 Players Who Will Be Key in Upsetting Alabama

Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has been working to get the Bulldogs to this moment since he arrived in Starkville in 2009.

The No. 13 Bulldogs (7-0, 3-0 in the SEC) travel to Tuscaloosa Saturday night to face the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0) in a huge SEC West showdown.

This is the defining moment of the season for Mississippi State and the defining moment of Mullen's career.

He has done a remarkable job rebuilding a program in what some argue is the toughest division, let alone toughest conference in college football. Mississippi State is off to its best start since 1999 and has quietly climbed into the top of the college football rankings.

The Bulldogs face an uphill battle this weekend against the Tide, but anything is possible in college football, especially in the SEC.

If Mississippi State wants to pull off the upset, these players will have to be key contributors against Alabama.
