Mississippi State is getting some love from one of college football’s most well-known personalities after drastically altering the playoff picture.
Kirk Herbstreit named the Bulldogs his top performing team of the week for their stunning 35-28 upset of No. 4 Texas A&M. The result essentially removed the Aggies from SEC West and College Football Playoff contention.

The ESPN commentator also mentioned No. 1 Alabama, which grinded out a 10-0 win at No. 13 LSU, and Arkansas, which dominated No. 11 Florida to add some intrigue to the SEC East race.
Herbstreit honored the entire Crimson Tide defense as his player of the week after it held the Tigers to just 125 yards and bottled up star running back Leonard Fournette for the second straight season.
