Ole Miss enters top 10 after massive win over Kentucky


Waking up this morning, my first thought was for a glass of water - then a Bloody Mary. What a weekend to be an Ole Miss Rebel. The AP top 25 poll released Sunday afternoon featured a top 10 full of undefeated teams, and Ole Miss came in at number nine nationally. Ole Miss conquered a very determined Kentucky squad on Saturday, 22-19, behind a rushing attack and staunch defense in a scoreless fourth quarter from both teams. The Rebels are now No. 9 in the Associated Press poll, which according to some math I just did on a bar napkin means only eight teams are considered better than Ole Miss - pretty good! Alabama claimed the top spot in the poll overcoming Georgia by a couple points in the poll. The Bulldogs have struggled in consecutive weeks against Kent St. and Missouri and seem to be losing the faith of the media as the best team in the nation. The Crimson Tide rolled through Arkansas in Fayetteville this weekend and covered the spread. Tennessee notched a number eight ranking with the Rebels right behind at number nine. Kentucky fell six spots to number 13, and then Mississippi State and LSU entered the top 25 at 23 and 25 respectively.
