Mississippi State’s season has been all over the place.
But the Bulldogs’ spot in the SEC Country Power Poll hasn’t changed much.
After opening the season with a loss to South Alabama, Mississippi State found itself at the bottom of the weekly poll.
This week, after a more-difficult-than-expected win against UMass, the Bulldogs (2-2, 1-1 in the SEC) remained 10th out of 14 teams in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll.
The poll consists of 22 voters this week, including some from SEC Country and around the nation.
Dan Mullen’s team faces a big test this week with a home game against Auburn.
The Bulldogs follow that SEC West battle with a short week, in which they travel to play at BYU on Friday night (Oct. 14).
Mississippi State ends its season with a four-week gauntlet against the SEC West: Texas A&M, at Alabama, Arkansas and at Ole Miss. Since 2010, the Bulldogs have won at least seven games each season under Mullen. If the Bulldogs can’t get past Auburn or BYU, reaching that total will be difficult.
Check back next week to see the Week 5 installment of the SEC Country Power Poll.
