Gators move up in AP and USA Today Coaches polls



Florida's win over Florida Atlantic bumped the Gators up five spots to No. 18 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, released on Tuesday. In the Associated Press Poll, the Gators are also No. 18 - up four spots.

LSU, the Gators' opponent on Oct. 8,  moved up to No. 3 in the Coaches poll, but is ranked No. 2 in the AP poll following its win over Oregon last week without several key players including QB Jordan Jefferson. Oklahoma and Alabama remained at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in the Coaches Poll, while Alabama fell to No. 3.

Auburn, which had to rally to defeat Utah State, fell out of the poll leaving six SEC teams remaining.
