2017 SEC Country Power Poll: Where Ole Miss is ranked (Week 12)

Ole Miss fell to Texas A&M 31-24 on Saturday, pushing the Rebels to 5-6 on the season. But how would the loss impact Ole Miss in the latest SEC Country Power Poll?

Ole Miss checks in at No. 11 this week, one spot behind a week ago. It’s the second straight week the Rebels have fallen exactly one spot in the rankings.

The Rebels led Texas A&M for a good portion of Saturday’s game, but could not score in the second half to keep pace with the Aggies.

Senior running back Jordan Wilkins was the star, amassing 147 yards and a score on just 19 carries. Junior quarterback Jordan Ta’amu was effective, completing 19-of-34 passes for 189 yards and two scores. He did throw one interception.

 

Ole Miss was ranked as high as No. 9 and as low as No. 12 in this week’s rankings.

Alabama retained the top spot after defeating Mercer on Saturday. Filling in behind the Crimson Tide are Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State and LSU. The order of the top five did not change in this week’s poll.

Vanderbilt became the fourth team in as many weeks to occupy the bottom spot in the SEC Country Power Poll. The Commodores fell to Missouri 45-17 on Saturday.

Ole Miss will not be bowl eligible this year, but it could still get to 6 wins if it can defeat Mississippi State on Thanksgiving night.

Here’s a look at how the rest of the league filed in behind Alabama in the Week 12 Power Poll. Check back each week for the latest SEC Country Power Poll rankings.
