Alabama-Miss. State: Prescott must have game of his life to beat Tide

After the Alabama-LSU game, many media members and pundits talked about how “ugly” the game was. The game -- aside from the hordes of fans in Death Valley -- was seemingly uneventful, boring even, given it was contest with huge implications. After watching the game a second time, I realized that perhaps many of them missed the beauty in that game: defense. Nick Saban said it...
