Gators No. 5 in USA Today coaches poll



College football coaches believe Florida should open the season as the fifth-ranked team in the nation.

In the USA Today Top 25 coaches poll released today, the Gators are ranked No. 5, one of three SEC teams in the poll's Top 10.

Georgia is ranked No. 1, followed by Southern Cal, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Florida. Rounding out the Top 10 are defending national champion LSU, Missouri, West Virginia, Clemson and Texas.

This is the first time Georgia has been ranked No. 1 in a major preseason poll. The last time the Bulldogs were ranked No. 1 was at end of the 1982 regular season, Herschel Walker's Heisman-winning year.
