Following a heartbreaking 53-52 loss against Arkansas on Saturday, Ole Miss (7-3, 4-2 SEC) fell out of the rankings when the Associated Press released its Top 25 poll on Sunday.
The Rebels have been a roller coaster in the polls, reaching as high as No. 3 after beating Alabama on Sept. 19 and falling as low as No. 24 after losing to Memphis on Oct. 17. Ole Miss had risen with back-to-back wins over Texas A&M and Auburn before the setback against the Razorbacks.
Ole Miss heads into the bye week to get rested, but the Rebels have a chance to jump back into the rankings if they can get a win against LSU on Nov. 21.
It isn’t a game with SEC title implications like Ole Miss had hoped, but there are still two rivalry games on the schedule that could get the bad taste of our everyone’s mouths before heading into the offseason.
Here’s this week’s AP poll:
- Ohio State
- Oklahoma State
- Notre Dame
- Michigan State
- North Carolina
- Florida State
- Mississippi State
