PHOTO: Nick Saban statue tagged with Mississippi State '#WeBelieve' sign

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

With their Bulldogs sitting pretty at 7-0 and ranked in the top 15, it's no wonder that Mississippi State fans are fired up about their team. It's no wonder they've taken the school-endorsed Twitter hashtag "#WeBelieve" and run with it. It's no wonder the hashtag might find its way off the Internet and on to State fan signs with less than 48 hours to go before the Bulldogs square off with none other than Alabama with both teams' perfect seasons on the line.

But yes, you do have to wonder at taking things this far: namely, via State blog For Whom the Cowbell Tolls and Twitter user Laura Benson, applying a sign with the hashtag to the Nick Saban statue on Alabama's campus:

Mississippi State fans, we also believe ... that one of you is a very, very brave soul, indeed. (As for the game? Here's our CBSSports.com RapidReports preview -- one that suggests it's going to take even more than belief.)
