Gators move up four spots to No 14 after victory over Tennessee



Fresh off its first win over a ranked opponent in the Will Muschamp era, Florida jumped four spots to No. 14 in this week's Associated Press college football rankings, which were released today. Florida is also ranked No. 14 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Florida defeated then-No. 23 Tennessee 37-20 Saturday night to move to 3-0 this season. Florida will host Kentucky Saturday.

With Southern Cal's loss to Stanford over the weekend, the SEC now occupies the Top 2 spots in the poll with Alabama at No. 1 and LSU at No. 2. Alabama is the top-ranked team for the third consecutive week, receiving 58 of 60 first-place votes. LSU received the other two first-place votes.

USC fell 11 spots to No. 13 after its 21-14 loss to Stanford, while Stanford jumped from No. 21 to No. 9.

Alabama and LSU are among six SEC schools ranked in the AP Top 25, including No. 5 Georgia, No. 7 South Carolina, No. 14 Florida and No. 23 Mississippi State.

The full Top 25 list is here.
