Ole Miss jumped four spots to No. 13 in the AP Top 25 Poll on Sunday, following a 52-51 victory over then-ranked No. 13 Arkansas on Saturday.

Then former No. 17 Rebels put up 52 points on Arkansas with 611 yards of total offense. The Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral led the way with 287 yards passing and two touchdowns. Corral also carried the ball for 94 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Ole Miss joins seven other SEC members in the Top 25 heading into week seven of the season. The Alabama Crimson Tide dropped from No. 1 to No. 5 after falling 41-38 to the Texas A&M Aggies in College Station, Texas. Georgia rose to No. 1, followed by Alabama (5), Kentucky (11), Arkansas (17), Florida (20) and Texas A&M (21).

Ole Miss travels to Neyland Stadium this weekend to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. The kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. on SEC Network.
