Ole Miss upset Mississippi State to end its season at 6-6. But how would the inactivity during SEC Championship Game week impact Ole Miss in the latest SEC Country Power Poll?
Ole Miss checks in at No. 10 this week, the same spot as one week ago even though the Rebels didn’t play.
Their last game of the season against Mississippi State was a true thriller and lived up to its billing as a rivalry game. The Rebels led the Bulldogs 10-6 at halftime and 24-6 after three quarters, but they were forced to hold on when Mississippi State came roaring back in the fourth quarter.
Senior running back Jordan Wilkins was the star, amassing 110 yards and 2 scores on just 14 carries. Junior quarterback Jordan Ta’amu was effective, completing 10 of 22 passes for 247 yards and 2 scores. He did throw 1 interception.
Ole Miss was ranked as high as No. 8 and as low as No. 11 in our poll this week. The Rebels also had some significant news come down in the past week when Matt Luke was named the permanent head coach.
Alabama remained at No. 3 after not playing in the SEC Championship Game. Auburn beat the Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl, but then lost to Georgia. The Bulldogs took the top spot in the power poll this week.
Tennessee occupies the bottom spot in the SEC Country Power Poll after still dealing with its coaching search disaster.
Here’s a look at how the rest of the league filed in behind Georgia in the Week 14 Power Poll.
