Ole Miss crashes the top 10 in the AP Top 25 in a big way after its 43-37 win at No. 2 Alabama.
Sparked by 11 first-place votes the Rebels jumped 12 spots to No. 3, a spot they share with a team they know very well: TCU. The Horned Frogs represent the last bad memory for the Rebels, a 42-3 Peach Bowl loss to finish the 2014 season.
Ole Miss is the highest rated SEC team. Ohio State is No. 1, and Michigan State is No. 2.
Alabama dropped 10 spots to No. 12.
Other SEC teams in the AP poll are No. 7 Georgia, No. 8 LSU, No. 14 Texas A&M and No. 25 Missouri.
The Rebels climbed six spots from No. 11 to No. 5 in the USA Today coaches poll. They received no first-place votes from the coaches.
