Ole Miss Returns to the Associated Press Top 10

The Rebs jump a few spots this week.

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

The Amway Coaches Poll, the first of the major human polls, is out for this week, and the Rebels have jumped three spots to No. 12 after a 56-15 drubbing of the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns in Oxford. The Rebs are nestled in between No. 11 Michigan State and No. 13 Arizona State, which is good for a sobering fifth in the SEC West.

The Rebels were able to jump due to Georgia falling eight spots after being upset in Columbia by South Carolina (and yet the Dawgs are still ranked higher than the Gamecocks, both coming in at Nos. 14 and 16 respectively) and the Southern Cal Trojans dropping 11 spots after a stunning loss to Boston College.

UPDATE: The Associated Press Poll is out. At No. 10, the Ole Miss Rebels are back in the top-10 for the first time in five years. The big differences between the coaches poll and the AP poll are that Ole Miss came out ahead of UCLA and Michigan State in both.

The AP, Coaches, and Sagarin polls shake out thusly:

So, yes, this means that half of the top-10 teams in the country according to the Associated Press are in the SEC West. Wow.
