Rebels up to No. 3 in AP Poll, tied with State

Following a wild Week 6 in college football, the Associated Press Top 25 came out on Sunday, and it certainly has fans in Mississippi abuzz.  Ole Miss and Mississippi State are tied for third place in the poll—each with 1,320 total points.

For the Rebels, it was a jump of eight spots from their prior 11th place last week. For the Bulldogs, it was a climb of 9 spots from their previous 12th place spot last week. For residents of Mississippi, it’s an oddity that has them shaking their heads.

Florida State retained its hold on first place, while Auburn moved up from fifth place to second.

Following Ole Miss and Mississippi State and rounding out the top five is Baylor. The rest of the top ton consists of Notre Dame, Alabama, Michigan State, TCU and Arizona, respectively.

The SEC has seven teams in the Top 25, with five of those hailing from the SEC West.
