We’re only a few short days away from football and do you know what that means? ONE LAST PRESEASON TOP 25! And it’s from the AP Poll! So it should be nice to look at, right?
Well, as it turns out, Mississippi State is the only SEC West team to not receive votes in the poll.

But the Bulldogs will have to face 3 teams ranked in the top 11 with top ranked Alabama, #5 LSU, and #11 Ole Miss. After that, the Bulldogs will also face off with A&M, Arkansas, and Auburn from the others receiving votes category (someone needs to tell me why Auburn is receiving votes from anybody).
