Mississippi State football leaps in AP Poll Top 25 after win vs. Arkansas Razorbacks

Yet another dominant win for Mike Leach and his Mississippi State football team has resulted in the Bulldogs moving up in the AP Poll Top 25 college football rankings once more. Last week, following the Bulldogs’ strong win over the Texas A&M Aggies, MSU entered the AP Poll at 23.

Now, following a really good 40-17 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Bulldogs are moving up in the world. Mississippi State is climbing the AP Poll Top 25 college football rankings pretty quickly right now due to how they are performing on the field.

Of course, dominant wins over a pretty good SEC programs will help your case. And that’s why, after MSU’s win over Arkansas, the Bulldogs are checking in at No. 16 in this week’s AP Poll Top 25.

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