Following a 27-19 win on the road over Auburn on Saturday, Ole Miss (7-2, 4-1 SEC) stayed put at No. 4 in this week’s SEC Country Power Rankings.
The Rebels received 169 points. Florida is just ahead of Ole Miss at No. 3, while Mississippi State is behind the Rebels at No. 5.
The performance against the Tigers on Saturday was good enough to keep the voters believing in this Ole Miss team. With LSU and Alabama on a bye and the Gators dominating Georgia, there just wasn’t any room for the Rebels to move up in the poll. The rankings should see some movement next week with the Tigers and Crimson Tide going head-to-head this weekend.
Ole Miss faces Arkansas, which is sitting at No. 8 in the rankings, this Saturday. If the Rebels get a win against the Razorbacks, a potential SEC West title game against LSU on Nov. 21 becomes a reality.
Here is the complete poll:
|RANK||TEAM||POINTS||1ST PLACE |
|5||Mississippi State (6-2)||147||0||4||6||5|
|6||Texas A&M (6-2)||136||0||5||11||7|
|12||South Carolina (3-5)||27||0||11||14||12|
