Dramatic Comeback Bounces Bears to #5

Posted on October 12th 2014

TCU was in full control of the game with a 21 point lead early in the fourth quarter and a win for Baylor looked hopeless, but the Bears never gave up and Bryce Petty lead Baylor to a 3 point victory over the longtime rival Horned Frogs. But it’s the state of Mississippi that rules college football. Both the Bulldogs and the Rebels followed up last weekend’s shockers with an encore. Mississippi State jumped to #1 in the Billingsley Report after beating SEC frontrunner Auburn 38-23 in Starkville. Ole Miss follows at #2 this week after walking into Kyle Field and totally dominating the Aggies 35-20 in front of 110,000 fans. I said if Ole Miss could pull this off, I’d never doubt this Rebel team again. What a great win for the Rebels in such a difficult environment. In my mind there is such a slim difference between these two Mississippi schools, both are playing great on both sides of the ball, offense and defense. The only reason the Bulldogs are #1 and the Rebels are #2 is that so far, Mississippi State has played an ever so slightly stronger schedule.
