JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The state of Mississippi is at it again. 

After another great weekend for the Rebels and the Bulldogs, Sports Illustrated introduces this week's regional cover. 

SI writer Andy Staples analyzes the success of both teams in his article, 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi. While the poll voters aren't sure who's better, they do agree on one thing: the state of Mississippi is No. 1.

"It's a rare to put a team on the cover two weeks in a row, but the MSU story, and by extension the story of Mississippi football, has only gained momentum since the first cover. The first story was two programs becoming national powerhouses at the same time. That then escalated last weekend into the second story: two programs that very well may be the best in the country. For Mississippi to go from unranked five weeks ago to No. 1 is a story that can't be ignored," says Managing Editor, Chris Stone.

Just a couple of hours after Sports Illustrated introduced the new regional cover, Barnes and Noble in the Renaissance received its shipment. They are one of the first locations in the area to receive the magazines.

Barnes and Noble says that they received 1,000 magazines and expect to sell out in 30 minutes.

Other locations, like Books-A-Million and Kroger, will receive their shipment tomorrow.
