Florida moves up in both polls this week

September

Following its 39-0 win over UAB on Saturday night, Florida moved up two spots in the Associated Press poll released on Sunday, one in the ESPN Coaches Poll.

The Gators are ranked No. 16 this week in the AP poll, while the coaches poll has the Gators at No. 17.

Oklahoma, which was idle on Saturday, remained at No. 1 in both polls, while Alabama moved back into the No. 2 spot ahead of No. 3 LSU. Last week the two teams switched positions after LSU's win over Oregon.

Defending national champion Auburn moved back into the rankings at No. 21 after defeating Mississippi State 41-34. The Tigers fell out of the poll despite a last-second victory in the season-opener. No. 22 Arizona State, which beat Missouri 37-30 in overtime on Friday, also move into the rankings, while Missouri and Penn State fell out of the Top 25.
