Week 9 Polls | And Then There Were Three

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

After surviving a road test, the Mississippi St. Bulldogs hold on to their first ever top ranking in school history for yet another week. Of course, the loss suffered by Ole Miss leaves room for another SEC team to jump into the top three. The notion that two from the conference will likely make the first ever college play continues to run rampant.

  • None of the rankings above matter as Tuesday marks the first release of the official College Playoff rankings. We can assume the current AP and Coaches' Polls may have some indirect influence upon the selection committee. But, without being allowed into the boardroom, it's just assumption.
