The Florida Gators are back in the AP Top 25, and Florida State has fallen out.

Those are the two quick local headlines from the latest poll, released Tuesday afternoon. The Seminoles, of course, dropped out of the rankings after Monday night's 21-point loss to Virginia Tech (which moved up eight spots to No. 21).

The Gators entered the rankings for the first time since last October after demolishing Charleston Southern.

Miami tumbled 14 spots to No. 22 after losing to LSU, and UCF rose two spots to No. 19 thanks to a rout of UConn.

Alabama remained No. 1, followed by Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and Wisconsin.
