The Crimson Tide were able to close out the match with a 15-11 set five victory, to win the match, 3-2.


Alabama's offense made the plays when it mattered most

After scrambling for a one-yard gain, quarterback Jalen Hurts connected with his favorite target Calvin Ridley for the fourth time of the day, gaining 15 yards. Hurts then threw an incompletion and was sacked to force a third and long.  Once again, he found Ridley, this time for 31 yards. Alabama was on the Mississippi State 26-yard line, with under 30 ticks left on the clock. The sophomore quarterback then found freshman wide receiver De’Vonta Smith for 26 yards, for the game winning touchdown.
