WOW! TEMPLE GETS 20 VOTES IN AP COACHES TOP 25

By Sarah Berkowitz

It’s not surprising that the biggest mover in the AP coaches poll this week was Ole Miss.

Thanks to a score off a miracle play, Ole Miss pulled off a thrilling 43-37 win over Alabama, its first back-to-back wins over the Crimson Tide. This development vaulted the Rebels up 12 spots in the top 25 to the No. 3 position behind OSU and MSU. Alabama, meanwhile, fell 10 spots from No. 2 to No. 12. Ole Miss also earned 11 first-place votes, the second most behind Ohio State’s 42 first-place votes.

This is the first time since 2006 that the Big Ten has the top two teams in the rankings. The last time the Big Ten held the top two spots in the AP poll was November 2006 when Ohio State and Michigan went into their annual rivalry game Nos. 1 and 2, respectively.

And maybe the biggest surprise is that 3-0 Temple earned 20 coaches’ votes!
