New Polls: Bama Still No. 1, Many Bulldog foes ranked

Streeter Lecka

Here are the latest Coaches, AP, and Harris Polls. While the Bulldogs are not ranked, six of their opponents on the season are.

While the Mississippi State Bulldogs are not in the polls, many of their opponents are ranked in each of the three polls.  In fact, the Bulldogs have six opponents that fall in the top 15 of all three polls.

In the national scene, everything currently points to an Alabama/Oregon National Championship Game, but undefeated Florida State, Ohio State, and Baylor still lurk.

In the USA Today Poll, Alabama (1), Missouri (9), and Auburn (10) represent the SEC in the top ten.  LSU (12), Texas A&M (13), and South Carolina (15) are all in the top 20. Oklahoma State is also ranked at No. 11.
