LSU moves up to No. 5; Kentucky enters Top 25

LSU jumped over Oklahoma, but the top 10 remained mostly unchanged in the AP college football poll. In the bottom half of the poll, five teams entered the Top 25 on Sunday, including No. 17 Kentucky for the first time since 2007.

The last thing Mark Stoops is going to do is get ahead of himself just because Kentucky is 2-0 in the SEC for the first time since 1977. "We're knocking the dang doors down one at a time."

It got a little chippy between Kentucky and Mississippi State in pregame warmups, and Benny Snell and Jeffery Simmons had a few choice words for each other. Bad mistake by the Bulldogs..

Good luck in trying to block Kentucky's Josh Allen one-on-one, which Mississippi State found out the hard way Saturday in the Wildcats' 28-7 win.

A major emphasis since Mark Stoops took the Kentucky job has been beefing up both lines of scrimmage and improving the Wildcats' physicality. They've held up well in the first half in the offensive line against a talented Mississippi State defensive front, another sign that this is a different Kentucky team and one equipped to hold its own in a league that has long been a line of scrimmage league.

Mississippi State's defensive line has been lauded all season, but the Bulldogs are also good (and huge) up front offensively. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald's ability to run the ball makes the Bulldogs even more difficult to defend. They converted four third downs on their touchdown drive to take a 7-0 lead over Kentucky. Fitzgerald looks a lot more comfortable throwing the ball, too.

Nick Fitzgerald easily runs in 1-yard TD (0:19)

There's actually a hint of fall in the air at Kroger Field, where Kentucky looks to start a season 4-0 for the first time since 2008 against No. 14 Mississippi State.
