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.
