Mississippi State jumped to No.1 in this week’s college football rankings after they beat former No.2 Auburn 38-23. With the win over Auburn, Mississippi State has built a pretty good resume for why they should be No.1, as they have beaten three top 10 teams in their last 3 games. Mississippi State’s next big test does not come until November 13, when they play Alabama.

Even after beating Syracuse 38-20, former No.1 Florida State dropped to the No. 2 seed. Florida State will have a chance to regain their No.1 ranking this week as they play undefeated No.5 Notre Dame this weekend in Tallahassee.

No. 3 Ole Miss followed up an impressive win last weekend against Alabama by beating Texas A&M 35-20. Ole Miss has already shown that they are no joke this year as they rank 2nd in the nation in points allowed at 11.8.

Baylor jumped to No.4 this week after beating former undefeated TCU 61-58, while Notre Dame jumped up to No.5 after beating North Carolina 50-43.

UCLA and Georgia Tech fell from the rankings this week and No.25 Marshall (6-0) entered the rankings for the first time this season.
