Florida moves up to No. 5 in AP and Coaches polls following 37-26 win over Florida State



One day after capping an 11-win season with a 37-26 victory over Florida State, Florida moved up one spot to No. 5 in the AP poll, and is also No. 5 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Five of the top 10 teams in this week's poll are from the SEC.

Undefeated Notre Dame is No. 1, followed by Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, UF, Oregon, Kansas State, Stanford, LSU and Texas A&M.

With Notre Dame's win over USC Saturday night, the Gators' slim chances of playing in the national championship game ended.

Florida coach Will Muschamp said the Gators were disappointed, but reminded everyone this has been a highly successful season.

"Regardless, I'm very proud of our team, the resolve and the improvements we've been able to make,'' Muschamp said.
