Ole Miss lands at No. 11 in the AP Preseason Top 25 Poll

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.

Texas A&M, Auburn and Arkansas received votes.

In the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Rebels landed at No. 12. On Sept. 5, Ole Miss will open its 2016 season against No. 4 Florida State, who received the same ranking as it did in the Coaches Poll, inside Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Two weeks later, the Rebels will look to beat the Crimson Tide for the third consecutive season and hinder Nick Saban’s chance at his sixth national championship as head coach.
