After the Mississippi State football team fell short in week four against the South Carolina Gamecocks, the Bulldogs have fallen to the bottom of the SEC standings.
It looks like the Southeastern Conference is shaping up to be pretty intriguing this season. We are now solidly getting some SEC Standings and are able to get a more comprehensive look at where the Bulldogs stand in the SEC West as the sample size of played conference games continues to grow.
In other words: as more SEC games are played, we’re able to figure out where teams belong in the pecking order of the SEC. And as more Mississippi State football games are played, we’re able to see how Zach Arnett and the Bulldogs stack up against the rest of the SEC West.
And the early results aren’t great for MSU!
The LSU Tigers sit at the top of the SEC West with the Alabama Crimson Tide. Both are unbeaten in SEC play so far, but LSU has two conference wins while Alabama only has one.

SEC Standings: Mississippi State football falls to bottom of SEC West after falling vs. South Carolina Gamecocks
Here’s what the SEC standings looks like right now after week four of the 2023 Mississippi State football season:
Texas A&M is actually off to a decent SEC start, but who really knows what to make of the Aggies? Mizzou is unbeaten right now, but the Tigers have yet to face an SEC opponent. South Carolina is now 1-1 in SEC play after the Gamecocks took care of business against MSU.
The middle of the SEC West features Auburn, Ole Miss, and Arkansas, who all just lost their SEC conference opener. Mississippi State is at the bottom of the West, but there’s still plenty of season for that to change.
It’s fair to expect Georgia to run away with the SEC East. There’s little evidence so far to indicate that they won’t be atop the SEC Standings when it’s all said and done, but the race for second in the SEC East is going to be interesting. Kentucky, Florida, and Tennessee could all challenge for that spot.
And who knows, many Missouri makes some noise as well?
