After a tough road loss against one of the best teams in the country, the Florida Gators dropped down in the latest college basketball polls but stayed in the top ten. A seven point loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, and that was reflected by the pollsters dropping them only three spots in the AP Top 25 and only one spot in the USA Today Top 25.

The Gators state rival in Tallahassee moved up in the Week 3 polls. Florida State was bumped up from 25th to 22nd in the country in the AP poll and jumped four spots, from 24th to 20th in the USA Today poll. While they may face off on the gridiron this week, the Gators and Noles will play on the hardwood Christmas week on December 22nd.
