After dropping to No. 21 in the College Football Playoff rankings following its loss to top-ranked Alabama last week, Mississippi State (7-4, 3-4) moved up three spots to No. 18 after destroying Arkansas 52-6 with its season finale – The Egg Bowl – against Ole Miss Saturday evening.

With all of the implications surrounding this year’s New Year’s Six Bowl games, making sure the Bulldogs get a win against there in-state rival will be very important this weekend.

Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
