How will they rank?... MSU and Alabama

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Ole Miss had the day off Saturday, but top ranked Mississippi State didn't have that luxury. 

The Bulldogs were on the road at fifth ranked Alabama.

And for the first time this season the Bulldogs did not walk away with a victory. 

The Crimson Tide beat number one ranked Mississippi State 25 to 20 in a game that will undoubtedly shake up the college football playoffs' top four when the ranking is revealed on Tuesday. 

The question is how far will Mississippi State fall and how far will Alabama rise?

Alabama dominated the game the entire time, as Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott seemed to struggle.
He finished with three interceptions.

Even though the Bulldogs made a valiant comeback in the fourth quarter, it was not enough to hold back the Tide.

Mississippi State returns to Starkville next week hosting Vanderbilt at 6:30 p.m. at Davis Wade Stadium for Senior Night.

Sunday both the AP Top 10 and Amway Coaches Poll ranked MSU as number four and Alabama number two.
