STARKVILLE, Miss. - Mississippi State takes aim on a third consecutive win and its fifth in the last six meetings over SEC West rival Alabama Sunday when the Bulldogs (4-19, 0-14 SEC) face the Crimson Tide (14-12, 3-11 SEC) at the Newell-Grissom Building. It's the first and only meeting this season between the two divisional rivals.

Sophomore setter Rachel Williams totaled a season-high 34 assists in her fourth start of the season as MSU tallied nine-match highs in kills and attack percentage.
