After falling to Florida, 38-10, Ole Miss dropped from the ranks of the unbeaten and in The Official SEC Country Power Poll.
The Rebels landed at No. 5 in this week’s poll after occupying the top spot for the past two weeks. Ole Miss earned 151 points from the voters, with a No. 4 vote standing as the team’s ceiling and a vote for No. 6 as the team’s low mark.
It should not come as a surprise that Ole Miss dropped in the poll this week after losing its first game. What could be argued is the team’s place behind Alabama, which rose to No. 3 in this week’s poll. The Rebels defeated the Crimson Tide in Week 3, but Alabama rose a spot after routing UGA over the weekend.
Another interesting side note about Alabama’s spot in the power poll is its place above unbeaten Florida.
Ole Miss returns home this week to face New Mexico State on Saturday at noon ET.
