Mississippi Tie: Rebels, Bulldogs 3rd In New AP Poll

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi and Mississippi State are tied for third in The Associated Press college football poll after a wild day of unexpected results brought major changes to the Top 25.

Just about the only thing that didn't change this week was No. 1: Florida State is still top-ranked, with 35 first-place votes.

Auburn, the only other team in the top six to win, moved up three spots to No. 2 and received 23 first-place votes. Then comes Ole Miss and Mississippi State, in the top five together for the first time after the Rebels beat Alabama and the Bulldogs beat Texas A&M on Saturday.

The Bulldogs received two first-place votes.

The Rebels haven't been ranked this high since 1970, when they were also No. 3. The Bulldogs have their best ranking ever. Their previous best was No. 7 in 1981.

Baylor rounds out the top five and Notre Dame is No. 6.

Georgia stays at No. 13 following a 44-17 homecoming win over Vanderbilt. Georgia Tech makes its debut in the poll at No. 22. The Yellow Jackets are 5-0 after a 28-17 win Saturday night over Miami.
