College football’s Week 11 did not disappoint in giving fans suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat football, with a number of games running down to the wire.
Ole Miss, however, was not one of those games. The Rebels stormed out of the gates at Vaught-Hemingway after two heartbreaking losses in a row, thrashing the Presbyterian Blue Hose 48-0. Off of that performance, Ole Miss jumped two spots to No. 10 this week in the AP poll, with Mississippi State sitting high at No. 1 and Florida State still a step behind.
Thanks to a loss by Notre Dame against Arizona State, the Rebels had room to move back into the Top 10.
The Southeastern conference claimed six spots in the Top 25 with State, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Georgia and LSU.
Around the SEC, Texas A&M went into Auburn, playing score-for-score leaving the Plains with a 41-38 victory.
Alabama and LSU lived up to hits hard-hitting billing in an OT thriller. For the fourth consecutive year, the Crimson Tide was able to pull out a 20-13 victory over the Bayou Bengals, their second of that set in Death Valley at night.
Mississippi State was visited by UT Martin and, much like the Rebels, ended up playing backups in a 45-16 victory for the Bulldogs.
Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators handily defeated Vanderbilt 34-10, and No. 20 Georgia easily doubled the points on Kentucky 63-31.
