Florida No. 3 in AP, USA Today polls, but No. 4 in BCS
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.
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.
