Mississippi State football climbs in USA Today Coaches Poll after beating Arkansas Razorbacks



Hey. Mike Leach and the Mississippi State football team got yet another huge win on Saturday. Unsurprisingly, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are on their way up in the USA Today Coaches Poll Top 25 college football rankings yet again. Last week, following the Bulldogs’ dominant showing against the Texas A&M Aggies, the MSU Bulldogs showed up at No. 23 for their first ranking of the 2022 season.

Now, after securing a 40-17 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks, Leach and the Bulldogs have earned a solid ranking. Just as MSU is moving up in the AP Poll Top 25 this week, the Bulldogs are also climbing in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

With Mississippi State’s second dominant win over an SEC opponent, the Bulldogs are now ranked at No. 17 in the USA Today Coaches Poll Top 25.

Here’s how the college football rankings shook out this week.
