Following back-to-back fourth place finishes in conference, Ole Miss was chosen to place No. 4 overall in the 14-team SEC. Defending national champion No. 1 LSU was chosen to top the conference, followed by No. 6 South Carolina and No. 11 Tennessee with the Rebels rounding out the top four. Last week, Ole Miss received its highest preseason rankings in both the AP and USA Today Coaches Poll at No. 12 and No. 16 since the 1995 season.
