Ole Miss continues to stay in the spotlight with top elite Division I college football programs, landing at No. 11 in the Associated Press Preseason Top 25 poll that was released early Sunday morning.
A total of six teams from the Southeastern Conference were present in the AP Top 25 with defending national champion Alabama landing at No.1, LSU at No. 5, Tennessee at No. 9, Georgia at No. 18 and Florida rounding out the poll at No. 25.
