UPDATE: Rebels move up to No. 5

The Ole Miss Rebels keep climbing in the AP Top 25. Ole Miss moved up to No. 5.

Ole Miss also went up two spots to No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

And after a season on the outs, Michigan is back in the AP Top 25.

The Wolverines, unranked all last season while finishing 3-9, were No. 25 in The Associated Press college football poll released Sunday.

Michigan moved into the media ranking for the first time since the end of the 2007 season after a thrilling 38-34 victory against Notre Dame on Saturday. The loss dropped the Fighting Irish out of the rankings.

Florida remained No. 1 after it’s second landslide victory. The Gators received 56 first-place votes. Texas is still No. 2, with one first-place votes.

No. 3 Southern California received a first-place vote for the first time this season after Matt Barkley and Trojans used a late-fourth quarter touchdown to rally past Ohio State 18-15 on the road.

The Buckeyes’ latest slip up on the big stage — they’ve lost six straight against top-five teams — cost them three spots in the poll. They dropped to No. 11.

No. 4 Alabama received two first-place votes. Ole Miss and Penn State tied for No. 5.
