The Game Plan: Alabama vs. Mississippi State

College football fans, get ready. ESPN's College GameDay is returning to the SEC this weekend for a heated matchup between the No. 1 ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs and the No. 5 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Various sources predict that the Bulldogs undefeated run will come to end in Tuscaloosa this weekend, crediting the Tide with having the one of the strongest defenses in the nation. What do you think will be the outcome of Saturday's game?

Tailgating reigns supreme in the South, and both teams have a dedicated fan base that are sure to set up camp on the quad in T-Town long before the game begins. Tide fans, get out there early to secure your spot and bring along a tailgating brunch while you're at it! The game is relatively early, so it's sure to be a day full of football, food, and fun. We've put together a brunch-themed tailgating menu for both teams, so you won't have to enter the stadium hungry tomorrow.
