Mississippi State football ranked for first time since 2020 after beating Texas A&M

Mississippi State football cracked the AP Top 25 for the first time this season, actually the first time since 2020 following a 42-24 statement win over Texas A&M.

The Bulldogs, now 4-1, are certainly opportunistic on defense, winning the turnover battle 4-1 over the Aggies and the Air Raid offense was unstoppable after the first quarter with another 300-yard game in the books for Will Rogers, who is third in the nation in passing and tied for first with 19 touchdowns.

Next up for MSU is an early start for homecoming, 11 a.m. Saturday against Arkansas, which has Head Coach Mike Leach listing his top five essential items for a morning tailgate. “Probably a comfortable chair, a lawn chair to get a little sleep in before kickoff. You would definitely want something good to eat, energize you but that’s quick and easy. Five, huh? Shoot, I don’t know. Coffee? You definitely want that, definitely want that. Definitely some level of stimulant. You need your sun glasses for sure. And then, well, and now probably if you’re really having a good time, you’re going to have a long after the tailgate thing, too. So, you’re definitely going to want a good TV setup or somebody have one or one of those screens out there on the lawn to watch the other games because you’re going to be done before most of them.”

Coach Leach still looking for his first win over the Razorbacks as the head man at MSU who last beat Arkansas in 2019.
