Ole Miss and Mississippi State Tied for Third in the Associated Press Poll, Ole Miss up to Fourth in the Coaches

Mississippi's as powerful as it has ever been in the college football landscape.

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

After a 23-17 win over the then-No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide, the Ole Miss Rebels jumped seven spots to No. 4 in the Amway Coaches Poll. The Rebels are the SEC's second-highest ranked team, with Auburn coming in at No. 2 behind the Florida State Seminoles.

The Alabama Crimson Tide fell to No. 7 after the loss. The Rebels' upcoming opponent, the Texas A&M Aggies, are No. 14. The full Amway Coaches Poll is as follows.

UPDATE: The Associated Press poll is out and - in the oddest, funniest little twist of fate - Ole Miss is tied with Mississippi State for the No. 3 spot. Both the Rebels and the Bulldogs jumped the likes of Notre Dame and Baylor for their wins over then-top 10 teams. Here is a look at the AP, Coaches, and Sagarin polls, the last of which somehow has Oklahoma as the No. 2 team in the country.
