Where Mississippi State, Other Teams Land in Latest College Football Playoff Top 25

Mississippi State staked a place in the CFB Playoff Top 25 rankings after a standout win over Auburn.

Mississippi State football's 43-34 win over a formerly No. 17-ranked Auburn team put the nation on notice yet again as the Bulldogs forged a comeback from a 25-point deficit, scoring 40 unanswered points against the Tigers to eventually come away with the win. 

The Bulldogs may still not have edged their way into the AP Top 25, but they did make their way back into the College Football Playoff Top 25 rankings, sitting at No. 25 overall.

The highest the Bulldogs have been in these rankings this year was No. 17 in the first release after they upset the formerly No. 12-ranked Kentucky Wildcats, 31-17 the night before Halloween.
