The Bulldogs began the season unranked and among 10 teams receiving consideration votes. Since that time they've knocked off a host of ranked teams in spectacular fashion and set the record for fastest ascension to No. 1 in the polls.
Marquee victories for Mississippi State, include blowing out LSU in Death Valley. This was followed up by going the road the next week and defeating Texas A&M. The Bulldogs finished off the impressive three week stretch by knocking off then No. 2 ranked Auburn. Needless to say it's been a productive few weeks for the Bulldogs.
While I'm sure the boys will enjoy the No.1 ranking for now, they must remained focused with a loaded back half of the schedule that includes, Kentucky, Alabama and Ole Miss, there's still plenty of battles left to fight, not to mention the potential of an SEC title game.
