The Florida Gators took down the Tennessee Volunteers in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium this past Saturday night, and now the media is acknowledging Billy Napier and his squad.
The Athletic’s Chris Vannini placed the Gators at No. 25, matching the latest poll from the Associated Press.
“Not much change in this group. LSU‘s 41-14 demolition of Mississippi State is the LSU team we expected entering the season,” Vannini wrote. “They jump up to No. 12. Alabama falls into this group after escaping USF. Missouri’s last-second win against Kansas State and Florida’s 29-16 win against Tennessee see the Tigers and Gators move into the top 25.”
The stock is slowly rising for the 2023 Florida Gators.
They’re receiving votes in the US LBM Coaches Poll and snuck into the No. 25 spot on the AP poll. The Gators will face off against Charlotte on Saturday night at 7 p.m. EDT.
