The poll recently updated with MSU at No. 25. The piece has been updated to reflect this change.
If he keeps up this season's pace, yes, he will tie Gholston's record in eight games. I used his career pace for a number of reasons (higher sample size, diverse competition, etc), though I expect him to be somewhere in between those two marks.
Good look. Just changed it.
I appreciate the stat lookup. I would be careful about extrapolating that far out, however. Plenty of tough games on the horizon.
