Rebels Slide Up in Latest SEC Fan Nation Power Rankings

Ole Miss is undefeated heading into its SEC opener against Kentucky on Saturday in Oxford.

The Ole Miss Rebels defeated the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and moved up one spot in the Grove Report/Fan Nation SEC Power Rankings after Week 4’s results.

The poll will appear each week during the regular season. Staff members from All Aggies, Mizzou Sports Talk, and The Grove Report voted on the rankings.

The Rebels (4-0) beat the Golden Hurricane, 35-27, and did so for the first time in program history. With the win, Ole Miss wrapped up an undefeated non-conference slate. It also moved up from its No. 6 ranking from last week.

Ole Miss is preparing to host Kentucky in SEC play at 11 a.m. Saturday.

The Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide remained 1-2 in the power rankings, though Georgia was not a unanimous No. 1 this week.
