The newest college football AP Poll is out, and the Florida State Seminoles come in at No. 4 while the Florida Gators are ranked No. 11. Both teams took care of business in their respective conferences on Saturday, but the 'Noles prime-time win over Clemson featured an offensive assault in the second half that had many proclaiming "FSU is back." The Gators beat up on SEC doormat Kentucky, easily cruising to their 26th straight win over the Wildcats.

FSU held steady at No. 4, but the Gators continued their ascendance toward the top 10, jumping up three spots. Oklahoma and Clemson tumbled out of the top 10, and Florida also jumped USC and Texas, who they were behind last week. Kansas State climbed to seventh after its win against Oklahoma.
