The CFB Playoff Rankings for week 2 were released on Tuesday night. It was no surprise to find the Georgia Bulldogs at the top. The Bulldogs are getting ready for a road trip to face the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday night.

Kirby Smart tells dawgnation.com that the fans in Starkville are loyal.

“Loud. I mean, they’re passionate,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. “It’s a rural community that everybody comes from afar and everybody’s sold-out and in love with their football team. That’s what they have to hang their hat on, their pride in, which is usually indicative of all SEC schools. But especially there. Being in Tuscaloosa for those years, it was right there right down the road. There’s a lot of pride and they’re really physical.”

According to the article, Smith also praised Arian Smith who improved on Saturday. “He stayed after practice every day, ran a lot of comeback routes, a lot of slants, a lot of deep balls,” Smart previously said of Smith. “For him to get that, so much gratification for this kid who worked so hard. He had bumps and bruises during the week and had to go in a black shirt and bounced all the way back. I really thought he was going to catch that ball late to put a dagger in there. He’s a great kid and a really good player.”
