LSU's victory over South Carolina on Saturday bumped the Florida Gators to third in the AP Poll and set up all eyes on Gainesville this weekend

Another week, another shift of power in the SEC East.

With Florida's 31-17 survival victory over Vanderbilt and LSU's win over South Carolina in Baton Rouge, the Gators are now atop the division and in third in the AP Top 25.

The Gators' 6-0 start now brings all the pressure to their doorstep. ESPN's College GameDay will travel to Gainesville this Saturday to highlight Florida's matchup with South Carolina in a game that could reopen the SEC East race or turn the momentum firmly in the Gators' favor headed down the stretch.

After faltering at North Carolina State and dropping to 12th in the polls last week, Florida State responded by stomping Boston College, 51-10, on Saturday and held their ranking steady.

The Seminoles now head to Miami to try and simultaneously regain ground in the national title race and spoil the Hurricanes' hopes of an ACC Costal division title.
