Following Ole Miss’ 37-24 loss to Memphis on Saturday, the Rebels (5-2, 2-1 SEC) dropped to No. 24 when the Associated Press released its Top 25 Poll on Sunday.
Ole Miss had seen its ranking jump into the top 5 after a win against Alabama, but losses to Florida and Memphis have now taken the Rebels out of the College Football Playoff conversation.
Although it’s a matchup that has lost some of its luster, Ole Miss has a chance to make a jump in the rankings next week with a big showdown against No. 15 Texas A&M coming up on Oct. 24 in Oxford.
The Rebels are 0-2 at home against the Aggies since they joined the SEC in 2012, but Ole Miss defeated Texas A&M 35-20 in College Station last season.
