Step by step, with perseverance and attention to detail, coach Sharon Fanning is building a winner in women's basketball at Mississippi State. Two years ago, the Lady Bulldogs reached postseason play for the first time when they received a bid to the women's National Invitation Tournament. Last season, they went 17-11 for the best winning percentage in school history and reached the NCAA Tournament. And now, another milestone. Mississippi State, 6-0 with a victory over Louisiana Tech, made the Associated Press poll for the first time yesterday, joining the rankings at No. 25. "That target on you keeps getting bigger and bigger as you get successful," Fanning said.

Tyler Russell threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns, Marcus Green caught two touchdown passes, and Mississippi State beat Auburn, 28-10, Saturday in Starkville, Miss. Auburn briefly took a 10-7 lead when Onterio McCalebb returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to open the second half, but Mississippi State responded with 21 straight points. Auburn struggled through an awful offensive performance. Kiehl Frazier completed 13 of 22 passes for 125 yards, three interceptions and two lost fumbles.

Somebody finally solved the riddle of how to neutralize Florida State's Al Thornton. Mississippi State forced him to the bench with early foul trouble, then shouldered its way into the NIT semifinals with a frenetic, 86-71 win over the visiting Seminoles last night. "We went at him, forced him to guard us and got some calls," Mississippi State coach Rich Stansbury said. Jamont Gordon had 16 points and seven assists for Mississippi State. The Bulldogs (21-13) held Thornton, one of college basketball's most dynamic players, to 22 minutes and 16 points for the Seminoles (22-13)

Jarrett Lee completed 21 of 27 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown, and No. 3 Louisiana State defeated No. 25 Mississippi State, 19-6, on Thursday night in Starkville, Miss. Lee was the unexpected star, firing conservative but nearly perfect passes all over the field. His 19-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle with 11 minutes, 56 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter gave LSU a 16-6 lead. His only mistake was an interception minutes later, but as it had all game, LSU's defense stuffed Mississippi State with little trouble.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL'S new playoff era finally arrived last night. You could tell, because ESPN treated it almost like the Vatican was naming a Pope. As if we expected anything less. So for starters, what did we learn from the replacement for those much-maligned BCS Standings? Well, the 12-person Selection Committee, which on Dec. 7 will tell America the four teams that will be in the inaugural FBS tournament, had Mississippi State and Florida State first and second. No shock there, since the only two remaining unbeatens from one of the Power Five conferences are rated that way in both the media (Associated Press)

SO, WHAT'S harder to fathom: that Mississippi State's football team in 5 weeks went from unranked to No. 1 for the first time ever, or that its coach somehow made it to Starkville by way of beautiful, downtown Collegeville, where some two decades ago he was a tight end for Ursinus College? "I've yet to meet anybody in Mississippi who can pronounce [Ursinus] the first time," said Dan Mullen, whose Bulldogs just became the first team in more than 30 years to beat three Top 10 opponents in succession.

Mario Austin withstood McNeese State's best shot. Then, Mississippi State's star forward started to give out a few of his own. Austin bulldozed through defenders for 14 straight points during a 7-minute, first-half stretch to rally No. 3-seeded Mississippi State from an eight-point deficit to a 70-58 victory over No. 14 McNeese State in the first round of the Midwest Regional. He finished with 25 points and nine rebounds. McNeese State coach Tic Price tried stopping Austin with an assortment of defenders, but it didn't matter.

Tradition? At Mississippi State? Perhaps the memory of Jackie Sherrill and that castrated bull pops into your mind. Oops, wrong sport. Nevertheless, in the biggest thing to hit beautiful Starkville, Miss., in a long time, maybe ever, the basketball team is headed to its first Final Four. And forget about all of those "Ernest Goes to Times Square" lines. The Bulldogs are hardly gate-crashers. Not when you beat teams ranked No. 1 (Kentucky), No. 3 (Connecticut) and No. 7 (Cincinnati)

MISSISSIPPI STATE, which had been No. 1 in the first three College Football Playoff polls, finally lost on Saturday at Alabama. So you figured there would be some movement in Week 4. And there was. Alabama moved up from fifth to the top spot. It's the first time the Crimson Tide has been in the first four. MSU, meanwhile, slipped to fourth. Which means if the inaugural playoff started tomorrow, the Bulldogs would still be in. And that's all that really matters. Oregon and Florida State, the lone remaining major unbeatens  unbeaten (sorry, Marshall)

The immutable laws of the basketball universe - that man's reach can exceed his grasp, but not his vertical leaping ability - were back in effect last night in the NCAA Southeast Regional. After a one-game deviation in which Princeton took UCLA to school in the first round here, there is order in the hoops world again. Mississippi State, the Southeastern Conference tournament champion, proved unwilling to become the next charm on Princeton's Phi Beta Kappa keychain. The Bulldogs, fifth-seeded in the region, easily outdistanced Princeton, 63-41, in a game that never really was in doubt after the first few minutes.

It's clear that the College Football Playoff selection committee loves to declare its arrival on the scene when it debuts its rankings. If it gets criticized, so what? We all know that talking badly about something is better than not talking about it at all. Certainly, you could buy this week's top three - Clemson, LSU and Ohio State - in any order you want. But the fourth team, Alabama, well, that got some people a little irate. The Crimson Tide, who finished No. 1 in the final 2014 CFP poll, have one loss, a 43-37 defeat to Mississippi.

She already had won three individual state titles, scored 38 of her team's 97 points as it won its third straight title and finished the season with the state's best mark in three separate events. But Winslow Township's Gabby Bennett was still competitive. Keeping with her habit all season, she wouldn't tell anyone where she was working out. "Every runner wants to keep their secret weapon," Bennett said. "If I tell you, I'd have to kill you. " When she finally budged, Bennett revealed she's been traveling an hour away three times a week for the last year to train at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia.

Jahlil Okafor scored a career-best 30 points, including four in overtime, and No. 4 Duke beat host Virginia Tech 91-86 Wednesday night for the Blue Devils' eighth straight victory. Okafor also grabbed nine rebounds and showed no ill effects of the sprained left ankle that caused him to miss the Blue Devils' last game. Quinn Cook added 26 points and Justise Winslow had 15 for Duke (25-3, 12-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Jalen Hudson scored a career-high 23 points for Virginia Tech (10-18, 2-13)

AS COLLEGE football gets set for its first Final Four, the "others" in college basketball await their fate. Saint Joseph's and La Salle are among the "others. " They are both in a very good league whose priority is men's basketball. Still, even the Atlantic 10 can't protect the "others" forever. If you don't think the Power Five conferences are in charge of college sports, you really have not been paying attention. Many of those conference power brokers look at the NCAA as middleman that is more nuisance than facilitator.

AFTER TODAY'S games, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee will make its first rankings, and, on Tuesday night, we fans will get our first inkling at what the four-team playoff system might look like. This is an improvement over the BCS, which chose two teams to play for the national championship, but it simply isn't fair and won't solve the controversy. Let's assume the college football season plays out as like this . . . * Florida State runs the table and wins the ACC playoff and finishes 13-0.

Austin Davis has an arm and he'll have the football in his right hand Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, so he'll also have a chance. Maybe he'll be the next Joe Webb, the last little-known undrafted quarterback to come into the Linc and pick apart the Eagles, leading the Minnesota Vikings to an unlikely victory in the infamous Wuss Bowl in 2010. Maybe Davis will become something more than the next Webb. Maybe he'll emerge as the St. Louis Rams' second coming of Kurt Warner, who is arguably the greatest undrafted quarterback in NFL history and certainly among the league's most amazing stories.

Led by repeat champion Tremanisha Taylor in the shot put, North Carolina State picked up a pair of victories in field events Thursday at the Penn Relays. Taylor, a redshirt junior, captured her second straight title in the shot with a season-best 57 feet, 9 inches, the ninth-best shot put in carnival history. Sophomore Alexis Perry surged to victory on her last attempt in the long jump, uncorking a leap of 20-91/4. Taylor, the champion of last weekend's Atlantic Coast Conference meet, said she was looking forward to a more relaxed atmosphere than last week, and she experienced just that at the new Irving "Moon" Mondschein Throwing Complex.
