After defeating the Kentucky Wildcats 27-14 yesterday to move to 5-0 on the year, MSU today moved up one spot to #19 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll.
After a wild weekend of college football, the AP Top 5 is as follows:
On the Coaches Poll side of things, State jumped up one spot as well to #18. The Coaches Poll Top 5 looks a bit different though:
Yes you read that right, Kansas State. The Wildcats are flying high, but I disagree strongly with their being ranked over Florida at this juncture.
Look for Robbie's BlogPoll Top 25 ballot soon, as well as the BlogPoll Top 25.
Bumphis has been huge this season, and is finally making his place in the MSU record books.

Mississippi State goes on the road and beats the Kentucky Wildcats for the fourth consecutive time to move to 5-0 and 2-0 in the SEC.

Oddsmakers in Vegas woke up Monday morning, had their coffee, then realized what they had done.
After Kentucky "opened as a 14 point favorite", Vegas pulled the line, and tonight released what is presumed to be the real spread - MSU as a 10.5 point favorite.
I would expect that line to move a bit higher as the week progresses with starter Maxwell Smith out indefinitely, but it remains to be seen.

Freshman signal caller Whitlow will get the start in place of sophomore Maxwell Smith, who is out indefinitely as he faces ankle surgery.
A glitch in the opening lines for the October 6 college football games makes it appear that the Wildcats open as two touchdown favorites over Mississippi State.
