Ole Miss took a step back on Saturday, falling 40-24 to LSU and former Rebels’ coach Ed Orgeron. Here’s how that impacted Ole Miss in this week’s SEC Country Power Poll.
The Rebels dropped one spot to No. 10 in the rankings this week with 72 total points. In addition to the tough loss to the Tigers, Ole Miss lost quarterback Shea Patterson to the season with a right knee injury.
Ole Miss did receive at least one last place vote, but it’s 2-5 Missouri that brings up the No. 14 spot again this week.
SEC Country’s Power Poll, consisting of 25 voters, placed Alabama in the No. 1 spot, which is no surprise. Falling in behind the Crimson Tide is Georgia, Auburn, LSU and Texas A&M. The Tigers and Aggies are actually tied for fourth in the poll with 232 points.
Ole Miss will now face Arkansas at home. The Razorbacks are coming off an embarrassing home loss to Auburn, which caused them to fall all the way from No. 8 to No. 12 in this week’s rankings. Arkansas’ starting quarterback, Austin Allen, is questionable to play.
The Rebels are currently 3-4 but are not bowl eligible.
Here’s a look at how the rest of the league filed in behind Alabama in the post-Week 8 version of the poll. Check back each week for the latest SEC Country Power Poll rankings.
