The USA TODAY and the Associated Press released their Top-25 polls on Sunday and Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin has to be happy to see that, coming off the bye week, his Rebels have now moved up four spots to 12th in the latest polls.

Ole Miss (3-0) has been resting and getting things set for Saturday’s 2:30pm CST kickoff against No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa.

There are four other SEC teams ahead of Ole Miss in the latest edition of rankings. The Crimson Tide stay at No. 1 after dismantling Southern Miss, Georgia remains at No. 2 after a similar result against Vanderbilt, and Florida moved up a spot after making easy work of Tennessee.

The biggest mover is Arkansas who shocked mostly everyone at AT&T Stadium, defeating former top-10 team, Texas A&M. The Razorbacks jumped up eight spots after their 20-10 win on Saturday and have another steep test this weekend when they head to Athens to take on Georgia.

Interestingly enough, Alabama opened as a 20-point favorite over the Rebels on Sunday, per Circa Sports. It has quickly moved to a 15.5-point line and could keep moving as the game inches closer and closer this week.
