The Florida Gators are back in the top 10 of the AP poll.

UF moved up two spots Sunday to No. 9 after blowing out Tennessee-Martin. That makes up for most of the slide UF had after its sloppy Week 0 win over Miami.

UCF remains the only other state program in the rankings. The Knights nudged up one spot to No. 17 following their rout at Florida Atlantic.

LSU’s win at Texas moved the Tigers up two spots to fourth. The Longhorns fell three spots to 12th. Jimbo Fisher’s Aggies dropped four places to No. 16 after losing to Clemson, which stayed at No. 1.
