OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi slipped back into the national rankings this week at No. 24 thanks to a four-game winning streak.

But the Rebels' last three victories -- over Idaho, Arkansas and Troy -- haven't exactly been against the nation's best. Now the Rebels (7-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) get a shot at No. 8 Missouri (9-1, 5-1) on Saturday in a much more difficult test.

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace said playing Missouri will be a chance "to really see how good we are." The Rebels' offense gained a school-record 751 total yards in last week's 51-21 victory over Troy.

Missouri must beat Ole Miss and Texas A&M to clinch the Eastern Division title. The Tigers are coming off a bye week following a 48-17 victory over Kentucky on Nov. 9.
