The Florida Gators rose into the top 5 in the latest SB Nation BlogPoll. Florida State dropped out of the top 10.

The Florida Gators climbed to No. 5 – including nine first-place votes – in the Week 7 SB Nation BlogPoll. That's up from No. 11 last week, before their 14-6 victory over the LSU Tigers. The Gators are now the third-highest-ranked SEC team in the BlogPoll, behind the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide and the No. 3 South Carolina Gamecocks. Other SEC teams in the BlogPoll include the Tigers at No. 9, the Georgia Bulldogs at No. 13, the Mississippi St. Bulldogs at No. 19 and the Texas A&M Aggies at No. 24.

The rest of the top five includes the Oregon Ducks at No. 2 and the West Virginia Mountaineers at No. 4. The Florida St. Seminoles, meanwhile, dropped eight spots – tied for the biggest drop of the week with the Bulldogs – to No. 11 after their 17-16 loss to the N.C. State Wolfpack.

Some of the new teams in the top 25 include the Aggies, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at No. 22 and the Iowa St. Cyclones at No. 25.
