Rankings from AP Poll

The 1948 Mississippi State Maroons football team represented Mississippi State College during the 1948 college football season. This was the only of head coach Allyn McKeen's nine seasons that did not end in a winning record for the Maroons. Despite the strong record — his .764 (65–19–3) winning percentage is the best in school history — McKeen was fired after the season.[1][2] The Maroons, who had won 7 or more games in six of McKeen's nine seasons, would not post another 7-win season until 1963.
