Mississippi State remains in the No. 10 spot this week, as the Bulldogs are coming off a 31-24 win over Arizona in overtime. A game in which the Bulldogs originally led by a score of 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, Mississippi State’s defense also forced five turnovers in the contest, four of which were interceptions.

Remaining at No. 9 in this week’s update is South Carolina, as the Gamecocks picked up their first win of the season by defeating Furman at home, 47-21.
