Wednesday is upon us and yeah, Thanksgiving might be Thursday. But we all know the real action of the week doesn’t happen until Saturday, when Mississippi State plays host to Ole Miss at Davis Wade Stadium.
Until then, we’ve got you covered.
Here are two things to know:
- The fourth edition of the College Football Playoff rankings were released Tuesday night, and Mississippi State found itself back in the poll after dropping out last week.
- A few days after surviving one of the highest scoring games in SEC history — a 51-50 win at Arkansas — Mississippi State’s bowl projections have certainly improved.
