Mississippi State will take on University of Alabama at Birmingham this week riding high on the success of last weekend's shutout win of Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles last win came over UAB in the 2013 season finale for both teams. That 62-27 decision ended a 2-10 campaign for the Blazers. New head Bill Clark won his debut in Birmingham over Troy 48-10 and now heads to Starkville for round two.
