Ole Miss jumps to No. 13 in College Football Playoff rankings
Following a dominating 38-27 win over Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl last Saturday, Ole Miss (9-3, 6-2 SEC) jumped to No. 13 in the College Football Playoff rankings that were announced Tuesday.
The Rebels are battling Florida in the race to become the top-ranked SEC team in order to earn a berth in the Sugar Bowl. The Gators are No. 18 in this week’s rankings.
With Ole Miss ahead of Florida, a loss to Alabama Saturday in the SEC Championship game should knock the Gators further behind the Rebels and secure Ole Miss a spot in the Sugar Bowl.
Ole Miss was ranked No. 16 in the Associated Press poll and No. 17 in the Amway Coaches polls this week.
Here is the complete poll:
- Michigan State
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Florida State
- North Carolina
- Ole Miss
- Oklahoma State
- Southern California
