The Florida Gators stayed at No. 12 in the latest CBS Sports college football rankings update.
Although the Gators jumped up two spots to No. 9 of the USA Today Sports AFCA Coaches Poll, both the AP and CBS Sports have Florida staying outside the top 10 for now. The Gators never looked in trouble during the team’s 35-14 victory over the Florida Atlantic Owls, but it wasn’t the dominant win most expected.
Alabama and Georgia top the list with Texas A&M jumping into the top five behind Ohio State and Oklahoma. The Coaches Poll and AP Poll both have the same exact top five. Ole Miss checks in at No. 17 and Kentucky at No. 23 for CBS Sports.
USF is ranked No. 123, nearly 30 spots lower than FAU, so Florida should have a chance to impress once again. If Emory Jones can establish a real passing game this week, the Gators could move up the rankings next week.
