DaVonte Lambert celebrates with Auburn fans after Saturday's win

AUBURN, Ala.  Auburn is inching up the polls again, landing at No. 4 Sunday in the coaches and Associated Press polls after a 42-35 win over South Carolina on Saturday night. 

The Tigers' used that win, and Ole Miss' 10-7 loss at LSU, to move up. Last week, Auburn was ranked No. 5 by the AP and No. 6 by the coaches while Ole Miss was No. 3. The Rebels dropped to No. 7 in the AP poll and to No. 9 by the coaches.

The Tigers will meet the Rebels at 6 p.m. in Oxford on Saturday in the Top 10 headliner as Auburn continues its march through the Top 25. The Tigers have already played Kansas State, which is bound for the Top 10; resurgent LSU, which is climbing back up the rankings; and No. 1 Mississippi State. Next on the Top 25 agenda are Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama, all on the road.

Auburn moved up two spots in the coaches poll even though only one team above it, Ole Miss, lost. The Tigers also slipped past Michigan State, which beat Michigan on Saturday.

Alas, the polls are for entertainment purposes only. The first college football playoff rankings from the new 12-person playoff selection committee will be revealed Tuesday night on ESPN. The top four teams at the end of the season will meet in a playoff to determine the national champion.

Auburn was ranked No. 2 before losing to Mississippi State on Oct. 11. The Tigers dropped to No. 6, then moved to fifth in the AP poll during a bye week last week.
