November

Urban Meyer said Sunday morning that the Gators entered the season with two goals: to make it to Atlanta and to be in the national conversation in November.

Mission accomplished.

Florida's victory over Vanderbilt Saturday night earned the Gators an SEC eastern division title and a spot in next month's SEC champsionship game against Alabama.

And the Gators are part of the national championship mix.

Florida moved up to No. 3 in both the AP and USA Today national polls, jumping one-loss Texas. Unbeaten Alabama and Texas Tech remain in the 1 and 2 positions respectively.

However, the Gators remain one spot behind the Longhorns in the BCS Standings, moving up to No. 4. Texas is No. 3 behind Texas Tech and Alabama.

The AP TOP 10: 1. Alabama; 2. Texas Tech; 3. Florida; 4. Texas; 5. Oklahoma; 6. USC; 7. Penn State; 8. Utah; 9. Boise State; 10. Ohio State

The USA TODAY TOP 10: 1. Alabama; 2. Texas Tech; 3. Florida; 4. Oklahoma; 5. Texas; 6. USC; 7. Utah; 8. Penn State; 9. Boise State; 10. Ohio State.

THE BCS TOP 10: 1. Alabama; 2. Texas Tech; 3. Texas; 4. Florida; 5. Oklahoma; 6. USC; 7. Utah; 8. Penn State; 9. Boise State; 10. Georgia.
