After starting the season 7-2, Ole Miss came in at No. 18 in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the 2015 season that were announced Tuesday.
The Rebels need some help to get into the Playoff conversation, but with a lot of football left to be played, you never know what can happen. Ohio State, the 2014 Playoff champion, was ranked No. 16 in last year’s first committee rankings.
Ole Miss’ best win this season was against No. 4 Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and its losses came against No. 10 Florida and No. 13 Memphis on the road.
The Rebels will have an opportunity to improve their resume when they host Arkansas on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Ole Miss also has contests against No. 2 LSU and No. 20 Mississippi State left on the schedule.
Ole Miss is ranked No. 19 in both the Associated Press and Amway Coaches polls.
Here are the full rankings:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Michigan State
- Oklahoma State
- Florida State
