SEC Power Rankings

Movement in the middle this week. I thought there were a lot of similarities between MSU and Ole Miss going into the weekend. Ole Miss had a better quality win in its first three games while both had taken care of business and executed offensively and defensively against lesser teams. MSU was very impressive in its win at LSU. While there are still a lot of similarities MSU has a better quality win through four games, its dominance for three quarters at LSU trumping the Rebels’ win against Boise on a neutral field. Because it’s never too early to think about the Egg Bowl I watched that MSU-LSU game thinking how Ole Miss and MSU would match up. The Rebels are going to have to get better at stopping the run, but, from what we’ve seen now, I also think Ole Miss would have a chance to get some things done against the MSU secondary more┬áthan LSU’s no-pass offense. The Rebels will have to protect Bo Wallace, and they’ve done that through three games.

    I would agree if games were 3 quarters. State looked like Ole Miss playing LSU. Looking good for those 3 quarters and then doing everything they could think of to lose the game. At best the two schools should be tied for fifth. The Egg Bowl could be special this year.
