The Associated Press poll released Sunday moved Ole Miss up to No. 11 nationally after a 33-6 win over Vanderbilt.
The Rebels (7-1, 4-1 SEC) have back to back 7-1 starts to its season for the first time in 60 years as another historic season seems to be within grasp. Ole Miss last won 10 regular season games in 2021 for the first time in program history and could accomplish the feat again if it wins three of its last four.
Oklahoma’s loss on the road to Kansas opened the possibility for Ole Miss to leap into the top 10, but it fell just short by only 20 vote points.
Here’s how the rest of the SEC is ranked in the latest AP poll:
- No. 1 Georgia
- No. 8 Alabama
- No. 11 Ole Miss
- No. 13 LSU
- No. 14 Missouri
- No. 19 Tennessee
Alabama and LSU will face off Saturday in an enormous game with national playoff and SEC Western Division title implications. Georgia will face Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee in its next three weeks in the toughest regular season three week stretch the Bulldogs have faced in probably three years.
Lots of football to be played folks, but the Rebels still have control of its own destiny. It may be an unlikely 4-0 finish to the season, however, Lane Kiffin has put Ole Miss in a position to decide things for itself and get back into New Years Six status. Cheers!
