Following the surprising loss to Memphis on Saturday, Ole Miss (5-2, 2-1 SEC) came in at No. 6 in this week’s Official SEC Country Power Poll.
The Rebels got 131 points in the poll, and remain slightly ahead of Georgia and just behind Mississippi State.
Ole Miss fans might actually be surprised that they remained that high in the rankings after the performance the Rebels had against Memphis. Ole Miss has plenty of issues to fix going forward, or the Rebels could be looking at a horrific end to what looked to be a very promising season.
The schedule doesn’t get easier for Ole Miss with Texas A&M on Saturday, who was ranked No. 4 in this week’s power poll. A win over the Aggies would give the Rebels some momentum and put them on their way to getting back in the top tier of the SEC.
