Week 9 Poll: SEC West domination; MSU remains in Top 10

Week 9 of the AP’s NCAA College Football Poll is out, and a little history was made at the top. For the 1st time ever in the poll, 4 of the Top 5 spots are taken by team’s from the same conference. Forget the fact that they’re all in the SEC, but they’re all in the SEC West! Mississippi State leads the pack for the 2nd straight week, with Florida State not moving even though the dispatched a top 5 team in Notre Dame last Saturday night. Ole Miss comes in at #3, with Alabama and Auburn rounding out the Top 5. All the teams I just mentioned except Florida State play in the SEC West. So if there was ever a time for SEC fans to boast their dominance, it’s right now. For the 3rd straight week, Michigan State comes in at #8 in the polls, even after a convincing win against Indiana. The best chance for the Spartans to move up will be impressive wins against Michigan and Ohio State, with the latter proving to be the biggest test. There are lots of 1-loss teams now, so Michigan State’s chances of getting into the College Football Playoff rely on MSU’s ability to win out and look good doing it. The Buckeyes of Ohio State move up to #13, while Nebraska at #16 is the only other Big Ten team. Minnesota and Maryland each received votes, but not enough to crack the Top 25.

Key Games This Week: #3 Ole Miss at #24 LSU, #8 Michigan State vs Michigan, #13 Ohio State at Penn State, #20 USC at #19 Utah
