Where Florida stands in the AP Poll after beating Vanderbilt

·2 min read

Florida may have shut out Vanderbilt and won by six touchdowns on Saturday, but poor play along the way has the Gators staying put at No. 20 in this week’s AP Top 25.

Alabama fell from its top spot with a loss to Texas A&M. Georgia is the new No. 1 with Alabama down to No. 5 and the Aggies back in the Top 25 just behind Florida. Kentucky is the next highest-ranked SEC team at No. 11 but that may be short-lived with Georgia on the schedule next week.

No. 13 Ole Miss ad No. 17 Arkansas swapped spots this week after the Rebel won by a single point after a gutsy two-point conversion attempt by the Razorbacks with no time left. Auburn finds itself outside the Top 25 this week after a loss to Georgia, but the Tigers received the most votes outside of this week’s ranked teams.

LSU, Florida’s opponent next week, isn’t ranked but still should be a decent challenge for the Gators. If Georgia can stay perfect, Florida will get a second chance at upsetting a No. 1 this year.
